Gift Aid

Gift Aid is a tax incentive that enables individuals to add an additional 25% to their gift, at no cost to them. That means that if you donate £1000 and claim Gift Aid, the final gift to your campus is £1250 - at no extra cost to you!

Claiming Gift Aid is easy

If you are UK Taxpayer or Dual Status Taxpayer, when donating online simply check the "Gift Aid" box. 

Alternatively, if donating by check or cash, you can download the Gift Aid Form here, and return to the UC Trust via post or by scan and email

Higher Rate Taxpayers 

You can claim additional tax relief on donatoins of up to 25%. For example, if you claim 25% tax relief on the Gift Aided £1250 donation, you wil receive a tax relief of £312.50. That means that the net cost of your £1250 donation is actually £687.50!

If you have questions you may contact the UC Trust directly by phone or email, or submit an inquiry form and a member of staff will contact you.
