Tax-efficient giving

Gift Aid

If you are a UK taxpayer, and make a Gift Aid declaration, you will be able to increase the value of your gift to the Somerset Wildlife Trust by over 25% at no extra cost. For example, if you make a donation of £40, your contribution will be worth approximately £50 to Somerset Wildlife Trust.

If you are a higher rate taxpayer, you can also claim tax relief from the Inland Revenue on your gift - so your contribution will personally cost you less.

The same rules apply if you make your gift by Direct Debit.

Please remember to notify us if you no longer pay an amount of income tax and/or capital gains tax equal to the tax we receive as Gift Aid on your donations, or change your address or name.

We are also able to receive gifts of shares. Katie Arber, Director of Fundraising and Marketing, would be pleased to discuss your proposed gift of shares with you. Please contact her on 01823 652448 or
