If you pay UK tax and you would like to Gift Aid your donation, we can claim an additional 25% of the value of your donation from HMRC, it won't cost you a penny but means your donation can reach even further.
Please note that the money that Comic Relief claims back from HMRC as part of the Gift Aid scheme will be treated as unrestricted funds and used to support our general work, even if the original donation was made towards a specific appeal.
If you make a personal donation to Comic Relief, you will be asked to declare whether you would like us to claim Gift Aid. This will be either by:
Ticking the Gift Aid box on the donation page online.
Saying ‘yes' to the Gift Aid question whilst donating via the phone. Filling in the Gift Aid form sent to you by text after making a text donation.
Asking your sponsors to tick the Gift Aid box on your sponsorship form.
If you’re making a personal donation please give your full name and home address and tick the box or we can’t claim Gift Aid. To say ‘Yes’ to Gift Aid, you must be a UK taxpayer and understand that if you pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains tax in the current tax year than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all of your donations it is your responsibility to pay any difference.
Please note, Gift Aid cannot apply to CAF cards (as the tax has already been reclaimed).
The charity reclaims the tax on your donation only at the basic rate, even if you are a higher rate taxpayer. If you are a higher rate taxpayer, you can claim the difference between the higher rate of tax and the current basic rate of tax of 20% on your Self-Assessment return.
If you would like a receipt of all eligible donations that you have made in the last financial year, then please contact our Supporter Services Team on email@example.com.
You can withdraw your declaration at any time on our website. Please note that the cancellation of your Gift Aid will come into place from the date of the update, any donations made before this may still be Gift Aided.
