It’s estimated that, every year, UK charities miss out on £560 million in unclaimed Gift Aid tax relief.
So, if you’re a UK taxpayer, remember to #TickTheBox when you make a donation to Lumos! And thank you to all our supporters who do #TickTheBox.
Lumos is able to claim thousands of pounds in Gift Aid each year, which is a huge boost for our fundraising and means we can do so much more to achieve our mission of a world where all children can grow up in safe and loving families.
Gift Aid is a tax relief for charities in the UK to increase donations – at no extra cost to the person making the donation. When we receive a donation from a UK taxpayer, Lumos can claim an extra 25% paid on that donation, if the donor ticks the Gift Aid box.
This means a £10 donation processed with Gift Aid becomes a £12.50 donation! And a £100 gift is worth £125 towards our work.
If you are a UK tax payer and you haven’t ticked the box for Gift Aid when you made a donation, or if your circumstances have changed, do please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can make sure we’re claiming everything we can on your donations.
