In addition, if you are a higher-rate tax payer, you can reclaim £2.50 on every £10 you donate, simply by entering the details on your tax return.

At the 40% tax rate, you can claim the difference between the higher rate of tax 40% (and/or 45% from 6 April 2013) and the basic rate of tax 20% on the total 'gross' value of your donation to the Calne Foundation. Click here for the Inland Revenue information of Gift Aid calculations.
