You can claim back 25p every time an individual donates £1 to your charity or community amateur sports club (CASC). This is called Gift Aid.
There are rules on which donations you can claim Gift Aid on.
You can claim Gift Aid online - you should get your payment within 5 weeks.
What the donor needs to do
The donor must:
- have paid at least as much in Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax in that tax year as you want to claim in Gift Aid
- make a Gift Aid declaration that gives you permission to claim it
If the donor hasn’t made a declaration you may still be able to claim on cash donations of £20 or less, eg from a collection.
