Over 250 charities back Gift Aid reform

More charities have backed the campaign to make changes to Gift Aid, which would add value to charity income – and give them much-needed additional funds to continue their valuable work.

The change would mean that a £100 donation from a UK taxpayer would increase to £133.33 for the charity once Gift Aid had been claimed. This compares to £125.00 as is currently be the case.  As a result, the Gift Aid claimed on every eligible donation would increase by one-third, up from the current one-quarter.

The move to boost the Gift Aid charities receive from eligible donations comes as charities of all sizes face a crisis to their income caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. The latest sector research shows that charities are on average having to plan for a 24% loss to their total income for the year ahead.

The coalition is being led by CAF, IoF, CFG, CTG and NCVO and includes support from a wide range of charities . The group have called for the increase to be in place for two years while charities work to recover from the crisis. The coalition estimates that this move could help charities to access an additional £450 million of much needed cash. It also includes changes to the Gift Aid Small Donations Scheme to ensure it benefits all.
