Gift aid is only allowable for UK Registered Charities, supervised by the Charity Commission.

Whether or not your donation is eligible for tax relief will depend on your personal tax situation.

If you tick the “eligible for gift aid” status on your donation, the Registered Charity is automatically able to claim a 20% additional top up to your donation directly from the Government.

Any additional relief for higher-rate tax payers may be recovered from HMRC in your annual tax return.
