Gift Aid is a way for charities to increase the donations or sponsorship they receive from supporters without any extra costs to you!

For every £1 donated by a UK tax payer, United Response can claim back an extra 25p from HMRC meaning your donations go even further.

Am I eligible?

Provided you have paid tax in the current tax year of at least the same amount as the gift aid to be claimed on your donation/s. You just need to make a declaration once and we will be able to claim on all your donations in the last four years and in the future.


Higher rate taxpayers can claim further relief on their gifts to charity via their self-assessment tax return. Please contact HMRC for more information.
