Like every charity, we have basic operating costs which are an important part of ensuring your donations have maximum impact and reach those in need. We recover these costs through the use of Gift Aid.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid is a UK Government scheme enabling UK registered charities to reclaim tax on a donation made by a UK taxpayer, increasing the amount of the donation by an extra 25%, at absolutely no extra cost to you. Gift Aid can be added to donations made by UK Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax payers, so long as you have paid tax at least equal to your donations.

Penny Appeal is the "small change, BIG difference" charity, so no matter how little your potential Gift Aid contribution may seem, it will go a long way - so please allow us to claim it.

Gift aid it. It only takes a TICK!

How it supports our work

Our Gift Aid claim helps to cover our administration costs, which are an essential and important part of ensuring your donations have the maximum impact for those in need. 


That's why it's vital that everyone who is eligible for Gift Aid lets us know, so we can continue doing even more for poor and needy communities around the world.

You can also make extra donations specifically to support our work, which will go towards the necessary administration costs of running our projects.
