What is Gift Aid?
Gift Aid adds 25p to every £1 donated, at no extra cost to the donor. It’s a Government scheme that enables charities to claim this ‘extra money’ from tax that people have already paid. To allow us to claim Gift Aid, the donor has to be a UK taxpayer and have paid sufficient Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover the amount to Islamic Relief will reclaim in the tax year. If you are fundraising offline, please make sure you send your sponsorship form to us so we can claim it.
How do I pay in my money?
The easiest and most cost-efficient way to collect donations is by asking your supporters to donate online through your own fundraiser page. You can also deposit any cash you've raised by card using our pay-in link: https://pay-in.islamic-relief.org.uk/
Can I do a challenge to fundraise?
Yes, you can take on any personal challenge to help you with your fundraising - whether it's a fitness challenge or a sponsored silence - the choice is yours!
