Gift Aid

Gift Aid

​If you're a UK tax payer you can Gift Aid your donations, making them worth 25 per cent more to us (25p for every £1), at no extra cost to you.

Income from Gift Aid really does make a big difference to the on-going work of the Royal Hospital Chelsea, so please don't forget to complete a valid Gift Aid Declaration:

If you are a higher-rate tax payer you can also claim additional tax relief.

For higher rate tax payers (paying at 40%) this works out as 25p for every £1 you donate and for the highest rate tax payers (paying tax at 50%) this works out as 37.5p for every £1 donated.

What we need to claim Gift Aid on your donation

  • Your full name and home address.

  • A signed and dated Gift Aid Declaration.

  • A donation made from a personal bank or building society account.

  • We can't claim Gift Aid on donations from corporate accounts.

  • You must be paying income tax or capital gains tax equal (or in excess of) to the amount the Royal Hospital Chelsea will claim in the appropriate tax year.

  • You only need to complete the Declaration Form once, but we can then claim Gift Aid on all your donations in the last 4 years as well as on all future gifts.

Please let us know if you stop paying tax, or if you change your name/address so that we can update our records.
