Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Al-Ayn Social Care Foundation to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Al-Ayn Social Care Foundation we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Al-Ayn Social Care Foundation to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. 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 I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Al-Ayn Social Care Foundation will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Al-Ayn Social Care Foundation receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

Meet Redha

“I am counting down the days to the Arbaeen, when I will serve chai to visitors from around the world. Since my father’s death, we have placed his photo on the pillar of my family’s mawkib (serving station). My father was a victim of terrorism; he died in an explosion whilst he was dismantling explosives to save the lives of others”.

When a team from Al-Ayn visited Redha (pictured) earlier this year, they were humbled by the twelve year old’s adult-like hospitality. He insisted on serving them tea and invited them to join his mawkib. He shared stories of his father with them, and – with great pride – showed them a choppy video clip where his father’s name could be heard faintly. Redha’s hero had passed away and his family were left living in poverty. To compound Redha’s trauma and grief, he was tasked with collecting his father’s remains following the explosion.

Al-Ayn’s support helped Redha’s family overcome the immediate impact of their loss through sponsorship support and more. Recently, their financial circumstances have improved significantly, and they have transcended the cycle of poverty. The aid they used to receive will now support other orphaned children in need.
