Gift Aid it?

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like YHA Fundraising to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that YHA Fundraising will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When YHA Fundraising receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

How your donation helps


could help towards the cost of a full-board break for a young carer, giving them two amazing days away from their worries and responsibilities


could pay for a night’s stay for a key worker and their partner, after months putting themselves at risk just to do their job


could help a low-income family create happy memories on a break away, after so long without access to green space

Background to the appeal

In celebration of 90 years of life-changing YHA adventures, we launched a special appeal to fund unforgettable activity breaks for 900 young carers and other children with challenging lives this anniversary year.

Then the crisis hit. Dealing a severe blow to our income and bringing sorrow and hardship to many in our community.

For young carers and children with challenging lives, bad situations have only been made worse. For NHS staff and key workers, the stress has been unimaginable. And with finances tight, fewer families can now afford the break they so desperately need.

We’ve extended our Project90 appeal to fund adventures for young carers, respite breaks for NHS staff and key workers, as well as low-income families who just won’t get a break without us.

Please donate to Project90 so we can help restore the wellbeing of those most in need of support.
