Reclaim Gift Aid
Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Havant & East Hants Mind to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Havant & East Hants Mind we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Havant & East Hants Mind to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Havant & East Hants Mind will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Havant & East Hants Mind receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

Your position

  • You will be acting as a fundraiser without payment or other material benefit (excluding reimbursement of expenses), to raise money in aid of Havant and East Hants Mind
  • You act ‘in aid of’ Havant and East Hants Mind when you are raising funds, but you act entirely independently of the organisation.
  • You will have the largest part of control over the fundraising activity, and the complete responsibility for the fundraising activity is yours.

Our position

Havant and East Hants Mind is unable to accept any responsibility or liability for fundraising events organised and run by you.

Good practice when acting in aid of Havant and East Hants Mind

  • Why not contact us to tell us about the event you are planning, just to make sure it is in line with Havant and East Hants Minds’ objectives and charitable duties.
  • Think about your target audience, size and what the fundraising activities might be. Make it attractive to meet these objectives.
  • Research event ideas with potential participants or guests.
  • If there are costs involved, analyse potential benefits and returns, including the likely return on investment and break even points. We don’t want people to donate and you to be out of pocket.
  • Avoid clashes with similar activities and dates.
  • Have some cancellation and contingency plans in place – It is advisable for sponsors to be made aware of the procedure for cancellation at the point of signing up.
  • If the event is cancelled, or if it is postponed it is critical you contact donors and ask if they are still happy for the monies to go Havant and East Hants Mind, and if not the donation must be refunded to them.

If you want further general guidance or advice about what to consider and to help you plan your event we can email you an information pack. [email protected]
