    GIFT AID

    How Gift Aid works

    The Gift Aid scheme is for gifts of money by individuals who pay UK tax. Gift Aid donations are regarded as having basic rate tax deducted by the donor. Charities or CASCs take your donation - which is money you've already paid tax on - and reclaim the basic rate tax from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) on its 'gross' equivalent - the amount before basic rate tax was deducted. Basic rate tax is 20 per cent, so this means that if you give £10 using Gift Aid, it's worth £12.50 to the charity. For donations between 6 April 2008 and 5 April 2011 the charity or CASC will also get a separate government supplement of three pence on every pound you give.

    How to make a donation using Gift Aid

    In order to make a Gift Aid donation you'll need to make a Gift Aid declaration. The charity will normally ask you to complete a simple form - one form can cover every gift made to the same charity or CASC for whatever period you choose, and can cover gifts you have already made and/or gifts you may make in the future.

    A Gift Aid declaration must include:

  • your full name

  • your home address

  • the name of the charity

  • details of your donation, and it should say that it's a Gift Aid donation
  •  










    MOBILE PHONE TEXT DONATION

    100% of your text donation will go to the charity and there are no fees for this service. There's no cost to you for sending the text message and your free allowance/bundle won't be deducted.

    Charities across the UK will be sharing their unique JustTextGiving codes on posters, emails, advertising and more. This donation amount will then be charged to your phone bill as usual (or deducted from your pay as you go credit).






    GIFTS IN WILLS

    Making a Will is the best way to ensure that your future wishes are addressed and carried out. By remembering the PSA in your Will, you can be sure your legacy will be used to give hope to the future of poor, orphan, vulnerable and under privileged children around the world.

    There are two possible ways of leaving a legacy to the PSA in you Will.
     
  • A Pecuniary Gift. This is a specified amount of money.

  • A Residuary Gift. This is a share of an estate once any pecuniary gifts, expenses or debts have been paid.

  • If you would like to add a PSA legacy to an existing Will you will need to fill in a Codicil document outlining the amendments. These can be obtained from a solicitor and once filled in, will need to be signed by two independent witnesses.
