What is Gift Aid?
Gift Aid is a scheme run by the government that enables charities to increase the value of donations made by reclaiming basic rate tax that has been paid on the gift. This means that James’ Place receive an extra 25p for every £1 you give at no extra cost to you. For example, if you donate £100 we’ll receive an extra £25 from the government meaning your total donation is £125.
If you are a UK tax payer, you can Gift Aid your donation. You can do this directly when you donate online, or if you prefer to do this offline you can print and send this form to:
The Fundraising Team, James’ Place, 20 Bunhill Row, London EC1Y 8LP
Please notify us if you want to cancel this declaration, change your name or home address, or no longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains by contacting us on 020 3488 8404 or email@example.com
If you are a higher rate taxpayer we can still only claim the basic rate of tax on your donation. However, you are able to reclaim the difference between the amount we reclaim and the 40% you pay yourself through your annual tax return.
What are the sources of your donations?
As a registered charity, James’ Place relies on voluntary donations to continue treating men in suicidal crisis when they need it most.
We are bound by the law to act in the best interest of the charity, and this includes choosing whether or not to accept donations. We conduct due diligence on corporate donors and assess donations on a case-by-case basis. Additionally, where possible, we work to ensure corporate donors understand the work we undertake and help them to raise awareness of our services with the men they employ or with whom they come into contact. We would not accept funds from commercial gambling or tobacco companies, or from the arms or sex trade. We review any opportunity with this and reputational risk in mind.
