Can we gift aid your donation?

If you are a UK tax payer you can Gift Aid your donation, meaning that we receive your tax relief for this donation. This increases the amount of your donation at no extra cost to you. For example: 

An individual donation from you as an income tax payer .............£10.00
Gift Aid claimed by BIG Bolton Fund from HMRC .........................£  2.50

Total donation to The BIG Bolton Fund ...................................£ 12.50

Also if you pay income tax at a higher rate, you can also claim further tax relief through self assessment. This means money back for you as well - even better! For more information on the Gift Aid system visit the HM Revenue & Customs website.
