Today (7th October) is Gift Aid Awareness Day, and we thought it would be the perfect time to share with you the difference that your Gift Aid tick makes to patients at Nottingham’s hospitals.
First things first – what is Gift Aid?
Gift Aid helps your donation go further, without costing you a penny extra!
Gift Aid is a tax relief allowing UK charities, like Nottingham Hospitals Charity, to reclaim an extra 25% in tax on every eligible donation made by a UK taxpayer.
This means that for every £1 you donate, we can claim an extra 25p from HMRC – without it costing you a penny more.
How do I sign up?
If you are a UK tax payer, it’s quick and simple to #TickTheBox and register your donations for Gift Aid – simply fill in our Gift Aid declaration form here, and we’ll be able to claim an extra 25% on all your eligible donations!
So every time you donate £10, an extra £2.50 will go straight towards supporting important projects, such as medical research and life-saving equipment, here at Nottingham’s hospitals.
Last year, we received an incredible £105,000 in Gift Aid – which would be enough to pay for four incubators for our tiniest patients in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
And that’s all thanks to our amazing donors for ticking the Gift Aid box!
If every one of our supporters did this, it would raise an extra £1.25million each year to support staff and patients at Nottingham’s hospitals. Just imagine the projects we could fund if all our donors ticked the Gift Aid box!
