What is Gift Aid?

The Gift Aid scheme allows give2give to reclaim some of the tax you have already paid on qualifying donations that you make to us. give2give can claim tax under the scheme provided you have paid sufficient UK income or capital gains tax in any qualifying year.  It’s a great way to support give2give’s charitable work to help local people in need across Bromley, and at no cost to you.

Gift Aid

 

How does Gift Aid work?

When you give furniture and household items we act as your agent to sell them on your behalf. When your items have sold we will contact you, by e-mail or letter, to tell you how much money we have raised, and how much Gift Aid tax can be claimed.  If you are happy to donate the money raised to give2give then you need do nothing more. If you wish to keep some or all of it then please tell us within 21 days of the date of the letter. We will retain a percentage for acting as your agent to sell the items.

It is this gift of money raised from sales of goods, or from direct cash donations, that can be treated as qualifying gifts for Gift Aid purposes. Currently the amount of Gift Aid set by Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (HMRC) is 25%. This means that for every £1 raised from sales of goods, or cash donations, we can claim a further 25p in tax already paid. This makes a real difference in providing extra funds to support give2give’s charitable work each year.

Make a Gift Aid declaration

Please help us by making a Gift Aid declaration.  You just need to complete our Gift Aid form with your name, full address including post code, e-mail address if you have one (to save on postage costs), a contact phone number, and your signature to confirm that you are a UK tax payer. We’ll do the rest and confirm your declaration in writing with your Gift Aid number.  Your personal information will be held securely in line with Data Protection requirements.

If you’d like to make a one off or regular cash donation to support our work please contact us on 020 3620 2922.

Here’s our Gift Aid Leaflet. Please either print this out or ask for a form in any of stores.  Alternatively our drivers will bring one when they collect your furniture, or we can send you a form to complete.
