What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid will allow us to claim back the basic rate tax already paid on donations by the donor.

This means we can claim back from the government on your behalf 25p for every £1 donated, boosting the value of the donation by a quarter without any cost to you.

We Need Your Help!

Due to the scale of the construction and fit-out of the Masjid, we have incurred some debts. The responsibility of maintaining the houses of Allah SWT is upon all of us, and there is great reward in doing so.

If you can help us by donating and encouraging others to do so, we, and inshaaAllah the future generations, will be eternally grateful.

What Is Gift Aid?

When you tick the Gift Aid box, charities receive an extra 25% on top of your donation, provided you’re a UK taxpayer. The best bit? It’s paid for by the government, so it doesn’t cost you anything extra!

So, if you donate £10 and tick the Gift Aid box, the charity can claim an extra £2.50, boosting your donation at no cost to you.

How do I know if I’m a UK taxpayer?

For a charity to receive Gift Aid, you need to have paid at least the same amount of capital or income tax as the amount your charity would want to claim in Gift Aid. For example, if you wanted to boost a £10 donation through Gift Aid, you must have paid at least £2.50 in tax that year.

When shouldn’t I tick the Gift Aid box?

Gift Aid cannot be claimed on donations that are funds that have been raised by (for example) a bake sale. The money must be your own.

You also can’t make a donation on behalf of someone else. If you are given the donation by someone, and you use your own details (bank details etc) to submit it, it cannot be accepted, even if they are a UK taxpayer.

Not sure if your donation is eligible, take a look at HMRC’s guidelines here: https://www.gov.uk/claim-gift-aid/what-you-can-claim-it-on

Is it worth it?

100% yes! We can’t tick the box for you, but when you do we’ll process everything and won’t charge the charity or fundraiser to receive the Gift Aid.
