Gift Aid FAQs

Boost your donation by 25p for every £1 you donate - it won’t cost you a penny extra.

Gift Aid explained

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid is a scheme from HM Revenue & Customs that allows us to reclaim an extra 25% on your donations made during the past 4 years, as well as on all future donations, without costing you a penny. This means that for every £1 you donate to Scripture Union, the charity gets an extra 25p.

Who is eligible?

To be eligible to sign up for Gift Aid you must be a UK taxpayer and pay an amount of income and/or capital gains tax - at least equal to the tax that all charities and Community Amateur Sports Clubs will reclaim in the tax year of your donation. This also applies if you pay tax on your savings, pension plan or investment income but taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify. If you pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on your donations in the tax year, you’ll be responsible for paying any difference.

How can I Gift Aid?

All we need from you is a single Gift Aid declaration, which will not only cover your future donations but also donations you have made for the past 4 years. To make your declaration, you can either:

* Call our Customer Services Team on 01908 856000

* Complete our online Gift Aid form below

* Download the Scripture Union Gift Aid donation form (PDF) below, complete it and send it back to: Freepost SCRIPTURE UNION

 

Please remember to inform us if you have changed your name and address, or no longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains tax, either by updating your Scripture Union Profile or calling us on 01908 856000. Our Customer Services team is available Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm, and will be happy to answer any of your queries or provide assistance.

*This includes any donations that I have made in the last four years, and all donations that I make in the future. I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year it is my responsibility to pay any difference. (Thus I will need to have paid 25p of tax per £1 of gift that I wish to Gift Aid in each financial year.)  I will notify Scripture Union if I want to cancel this declaration, change my name or home address or no longer pay sufficient tax on my Income and/or Capital Gains. I understand my billing address will be used as my home address. (If this is not the case please contact our customer service team)
