What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid is a tax incentive by the UK government designed to benefit UK registered charities. It allows charities to reclaim tax on a donation made by a UK taxpayer, which means that your donation is worth 25% more! GlobalGiving processes all Gift Aid claims for our partners with the UK government.

When checking out in GBP on GlobalGiving.org, there will be boxes to input your UK taxpayer address that allows us to claim Gift Aid. The currency should show in GBP if you are located in the UK, but if not, you can manually switch the currency from USD to GBP in checkout.

For more information about Gift Aid, please visit the HMRC Gift Aid website.
