Every Gift Aider is a Lifesaver

By signing up to Gift Aid you will be helping fund life-saving research and provide care for people in your community and across the nation.

What is Gift Aid?

  • Gift Aid is a scheme run by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) that means charities like The BHF can reclaim the tax on your donations at no extra cost to you.
  • This means all your donations will be worth 25% more. So if the lovely things you bring sell for £10, we will actually receive £12.50.

Who can become a Gift Aider?

  • You must be a current UK taxpayer, but this is not limited to tax on earnings.
  • You also qualify if you pay tax on a pension, savings, property sales or rental income.*
  • You only need to have paid as much in tax as the BHF will reclaim on your donations.

How do I become a Gift Aider?

  • Download the form at home, print it out, fill in your details and bring to your local shop
  • or fill in the form found in each donation bag received and place it inside the top of your bag full of things. If you are a Gift Aider already, please write your donor ID number on the outside of the bag where indicated.
  • or take two minutes to join in any BHF shop, find out more at bhf.org.uk/giftaid

When your lovely things have sold we’ll write to you to let you know how much they have raised.

We’ll never share your details with third parties.

*Council Tax and VAT will not qualify as income tax.
