Gift Aid is a really important part of your donation and supporting the school’s e-learning programme. Find out more here about what Gift Aid is, whether you qualify and how to enable us to collect that on your and your school’s behalf.
Simply complete the ‘Gift Aid declaration’ section of the donation form that your school will give you. If you cannot find this please contact your school in the first instance or you can call us
It is a statement by an individual taxpayer in the UK that they are happy for a charity to claim back tax they have already paid on the money they used to make the donation. The tax you pay during the year must be more than the total value of your donations to us and to any other UK charity.
The declaration wording covers present, future and past donations.
Absolutely nothing! It simply lets the charity claim an extra 25% on top of your donation that we can put back into the programme.
For every £1 you donate to the Learning Foundation in a financial year, you must have paid 25p in income or capital gains tax in the same financial year. You pay these taxes if:
If you do not pay any tax in the UK you should not make a Gift Aid declaration.
If you pay a lower rate, the charity can still claim Gift Aid on your donation, provided you pay enough tax during the year to cover the claim in the tax year you make the gift(s).
If you declare your donations on your self-assessment tax return, you can claim a rebate based on the difference between the higher rate and the basic rate. The form also allows you to nominate a charity to receive any rebate due. So please consider this simple way to add even more to your donation to the Learning Foundation.
If you start paying tax please send us your Gift Aid declaration. If you no longer pay tax, please remember to tell us right away.
Only your school, the Learning Foundation and the Inland Revenue. We will not share it with anyone else.
