Gift Aid – Maximise your gift’s value

King’s Ely is a registered charity, no. 802427, and can claim an additional 25p for every £1 given through Gift Aid. For example, a donation of £100 is worth £125. If you are a UK taxpayer, please complete the Gift Aid declaration on the Gift Form and we will do the rest with HMRC. A higher rate taxpayer can claim back an additional amount in their tax return, so their gift costs even less!

Items ranging from antiques to air miles, paintings or property are most welcome and will be disposed of by the school. In-kind gifts can be given tax effectively by UK tax payers. Alternatively, you may decide to purchase a specific item for a school department. If so, please contact the Development Office to check that your choice is still needed and to ensure that your gift is made tax efficient.
