Are you a UK tax payer? Why not boost your donation with Gift Aid?

You can increase the value of your donation at no further cost to you.

How Gift Aid works

Gift Aid means that the government won't tax us on your donation. So the donation portion will be increased by 25%.

Also if you pay income tax at the higher rate, you can claim further tax relief in your tax return.

Is it worth doing?

Last year Gift Aid raised an additional £65,000 for the Cathedral, so it all adds up!

How to make a Gift Aid declaration

Simply download and fill in the Gift Aid declaration form

Then return it with your donation form, be that as an email attachment or in the post.

How long does a Gift Aid declaration last?

Once you have made a declaration, it will cover all eligible donations and membership subscriptions in the last four years.

It will continue until you cancel your declaration.

Does Gift Aid apply to Patron membership?

Yes, as a registered charity, Durham Cathedral can claim Gift Aid on all memberships from Young Patron to Bede Patron and all additional donations.
