JustGiving donation box

Your guide to Gift Aid

Gift Aid is a brilliant way to boost your Afternoon Tea fundraising. Guests can increase the value of their donations and it doesn’t cost you or them a penny. All they have to do is check they’re eligible, give us their permission and we’ll do the rest. 

How can you help us raise even more money?  

With Gift Aid, your guests can increase the value of their donation by 25% without spending another penny. This means we can claim an extra 25p for every £1 of their donation – amazing, right? They just need to be a UK taxpayer and check if they agree with the Gift Aid statement. 

How can Breast Cancer Now claim this extra money?  

Use the Gift Aid form in your fundraising pack or order one from our extra orders page. It's quick and simple to fill out - just ask your eligible guests to add their full name, address and postcode (home addresses only please), gift amount and gift date. Most importantly, they need to tick the Gift Aid box, or we won’t be able to claim the extra cash. 

If you’re the Afternoon Tea organiser, please remember that every individual donation must be added to the form, along with the donor’s details and their permission to Gift Aid.  

Please note: We can only claim Gift Aid on voluntary donations, so if you’re selling cakes (or other items), ask for a suggested donation instead of a set price. We can’t claim Gift Aid on money raised through the sale of raffle tickets.
