Gift Aid

Thank you for your interest in making your already vital support go even further. Right now, Samaritan’s Purse is working hard to help in situations of dire need and suffering around the world; including those seriously ill from coronavirus in Italy and communities facing starvation in Zambia.

If you are able to Gift Aid your past donations, this will help us reach even more people with the life-saving help they need. Please read the following information on Gift Aid, and, if you are able to, complete the form below.

Gift Aid is a government funded scheme that allows charities to claim the basic rate of tax on top of money donated by UK taxpayers. Simply put, Gift Aid increases the value of any eligible donation by 25%. More of your money can go to the causes you care about, and at no extra cost to you.

  • Samaritan’s Purse can only claim Gift Aid on your donations if you’ve paid UK Income and / or Capital Gains Tax during the tax year. The tax you pay in each tax year must be at least equal to the value of Gift Aid the charity will claim on your donation(s).
    • Example: For every £100 donated, we can receive another £25 on top as long as you have paid £25 of UK Income and / or Capital Gains Tax during that same tax year.
  • Donations are not eligible for Gift Aid if they are made by you on behalf of a church, a company, or another person — including fundraising income (eg. money raised in a bake sale).

Thank you for helping those in need around the world through your generous gifts to Samaritan’s Purse.

Gift Aid Declaration

  • Boost your donation by 25p of Gift Aid for every £1 you donate. Gift Aid is reclaimed by Samaritan’s Purse from the tax you pay. I would like Samaritan’s Purse to treat this donation and any donations I make in the future or have made in the past 4 years (until I notify otherwise), as Gift Aid donations. I am a UK taxpayer and I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year it is my responsibility to pay any difference to HMRC.
