Make your donations go further

Every £100 you donate could be worth over £125 to New Perspectives
The Government operates a scheme called Gift Aid that allows charities to claim the basic rate tax on every pound donated. Giving under Gift Aid means that so much more money can be raised at no extra cost to our donors. For example as a standard rate UK taxpayer if you donate £100 to New Perspectives, it means that you'll actually be giving us at least £125.

So if you are a UK tax payer and you have given us permission to do so, we can claim Gift Aid on your donation. To ensure that the Gift Aid claim is valid, meaning we can claim the money back, it's vitally important that you give us permission by completing all the information asked for by downloading form below or call us on 0115 973 9121.
Increase your support for New Perspectives by 25%!

If you are a UK Taxpayer we can reclaim the tax paid on any voluntary donation or subscription. We reclaim an additional 25% from the government (subject to your having paid an amount of Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax at least equal to that amount).

Here are some examples of how much extra New Perspectives can receive from your donation:

Higher Rate Tax Payers and Gift Aid
We can only claim back the basic tax rate of 20% in Gift Aid. However, if you pay a higher rate of income tax (45% or above) you could be entitled to a tax rebate on your donation, worth the difference between the basic rate of tax and your higher rate. This extra could make a real difference to your donation.

If you want to receive the additional tax relief you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self-Assessment tax return or ask HM Revenue and Customs to adjust your tax code. The SA Donate Scheme ceased from April 2012. This means that donors can no longer send a tax refund to a charity straight from their tax return. Donors can still donate their tax refund to any charity themselves and claim Gift Aid if the qualifying conditions have been met.

If you have any queries about your tax position, contact HMRC on 0845 9000 444 or visit their website at www.hmrc.gov.uk
