Gift Aid

If you are a UK taxpayer, you can increase your donation to us by 25% at no extra cost to you. So the government will add an extra 25p to a donation of £1, for example. Once we have received your permission, via your Gift Aid declaration, we can claim the tax back on your donation. If you have not submitted a Gift Aid Declaration to Rain Rescue before you can do so today by completing the online form below.

Full information and guidance can be found on the HM Revenue & Customs site at

  • To maximise your tax giving, your Gift Aid declaration will be automatically backdated 4 years as permitted by the Gift Aid Scheme.

Gift Aid Declaration

In order to claim Gift Aid on your donation we will need your name and full address. Please confirm that you have read and understood the declaration before submitting the form. Thank you.
    I would like Rain Rescue (Registered Charity No 1115089) to reclaim the tax on this and any other eligible donations or membership subscriptions that I may make in the future or have made in the past 4 years. I understand that I need to pay enough Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax in each tax year to cover the Gift Aid claimed on all my donations otherwise it is my responsibility to pay any difference. I understand the charity will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.
