Gift aid your charity shop donations
What is it and how does it help?
Did you know that when you donate goods to our Shelter charity shops, if you are a UK taxpayer then we can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give? This costs you nothing extra and works through a government scheme called Gift Aid.
UK taxpayers pay income or capital gains tax. When you donate goods to our shops and complete something called a Gift Aid ‘declaration’, all we do is simply claim that back. This means we can do even more with your kind donation – without you having to do any extra work!
How do I get involved with Gift Aid?
It's easy – just complete our form below. We know it might look a little overwhelming, but there’s good news: you will only have to do this once! When you have submitted your declaration, it will apply to all your eligible donations from the last four years – and to any donation you make in the future.
