Do I qualify for Gift Aid?
To qualify for Gift Aid you must have paid income or capital gains tax (in the UK) for each tax year (6 April to 5 April) at least equal to the tax that all the charities that you donate to will reclaim on your gifts for that tax year. Other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify.

What if I already have a Gift Aid declaration with another charity?

Can Gift Aid be reclaimed on a collection I have made?
Gift Aid can be reclaimed on the gifts of the individuals who already have or request a Gift Aid declaration for collections such as anniversary gifts in lieu, funeral donations and party collections. For such collections to IA-Foundation please send in all the cheques together and each person who can should write ‘please reclaim Gift Aid’ on the form/envelope in which they put their donation as well as their full name and address.
