It’s getting cold in Iraq

Everyone is entitled to live in adequate housing. For many orphaned children and their families living in poverty in Iraq, the winter months are a stark reminder of all that they have lost. As part of our promise to provide comprehensive care to these children, and thanks to your support, we have built and repaired hundreds of houses.

This winter, give the gift of warmth and transform the lives of entire families by donating towards critical house repairs. When you contribute to the rebuilding of roofs and walls, children like Zahra (pictured) can finally begin to build happy memories in their secure, warm homes.

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.
