Boost your donations with Gift Aid
If you are an individual UK taxpayer, you can help charities you support add an extra 25p for every £1 you give, and it doesn’t cost you anything. Thanks to the Gift Aid scheme, PayPal Giving Fund can reclaim tax you’ve paid on everything you donate through eBay for Charity, and pass it on to your chosen charities.
To boost your donations, make a Gift Aid declaration, confirming your name and home address.
Note: To qualify for Gift Aid, you must pay more in income tax or capital gains tax than charities reclaim on your donations each tax year.
Self-employed (sole traders) and partnerships may declare for Gift Aid. In addition, higher rate tax payers may reclaim 25p on their own tax return for every £1 donated to charity.
Companies may not declare for Gift Aid. However they can receive tax relief on their own tax return for every £1 donated to charity.
