It’s a simple process

To Gift Aid your donation all you need to do is complete a Gift Aid form and return it to Gainsborough’s House.

Gift Aid is a scheme that allows charities such as Gainsborough’s House to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers. All donations to Gainsborough’s House through Gift Aid collect 25p for every £1 you give. This won’t cost you any extra and supports the museum greatly!

Paying enough tax to qualify for Gift Aid

  • You need to be a UK tax payer
  • You need to have paid enough tax through income and capital gains tax in the financial year of your donation (6 April to 5 April)
  • You must tell the charities you support through Gift Aid if you stop paying enough tax
