Gift Aid (UK Taxpayers)

UK taxpayers

For individuals who are UK tax payers, using Gift Aid means that for every £1 you give, we get an extra 25p from the Inland Revenue, making your donation go further. This means that £100 can be turned in to £125 through the Gift Aid scheme. Imagine what a difference this could make, at no extra cost to you.

Most gifts by individuals to The Courtauld are eligible for Gift Aid including Annual Fund, Friends and Samuel Courtauld Society memberships. All gift forms on this site include the option to give through the Gift Aid scheme, as does the donate online facility. Where your gift might be eligible for Gift Aid you will see this logo.

Then just sign [or if giving online check the box] of the Gift Aid declaration – it is as simple as that.

Higher rate tax payers

If you are a UK higher rate tax payer you can claim tax relief through your tax return of 20% – the difference between the standard rate of income tax (20%) and the higher rate (40%).
