Sign up for Gift Aid

If you are a UK taxpayer, the value of your donations made in the past four years can be increased by 25% under the Gift Aid scheme at no extra cost to you.

Please let us know whether or not we can claim Gift Aid on your donations by ensuring the details below are correct and checking the relevant box below (fields marked with * are mandatory).

To qualify for Gift Aid you must have paid enough Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover the amount that all charities and CASCs you donate to will reclaim for that tax year. Council Tax and VAT do not count and you should understand that charities will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that you have given (28p on every pound given for donations up to 5 April 2008).

Please notify LCC if you are no longer eligible to Gift Aid your donations.
