Why Gift Aid is so important?
Gift Aid is a simple way to make your donation go even further, without any cost to you. If your donation is eligible, Al-Khair Foundation can claim an extra 25% from HMRC.
That means for every £1 you give, it's worth £1.25 to Al-Khair Foundation. These extra funds will help us to aid the developing counties even better.
We believe in being open, honest and transparent with our supporters and want you to feel comfortable about your decision to give.

Gift Aid Information
Who can be a Gift Aid donor?
Anyone who pays UK tax and the tax can be income tax or capital gains tax (but NOT Council Tax or VAT) on:
- Wages or salary.
- Self-employed earnings.
- Pensions and /or
- Investment income from a bank or building society or dividends.
If you live outside the UK but you still pay UK tax, then we can Gift Aid your donations. If you are part of the armed forces or ‘peace corps’, and are living abroad we can Gift Aid your donations. If you stop paying tax, you need to tell us, so that we can stop reclaiming tax on your gifts.
Key Facts about Gift Aid
When Al-Khair Foundation Receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we are entitled to claim, an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf (by filling in this Gift Aid form), there is no need for you to do anything else.
All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that you would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.
The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate, which we will claim, and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
