If you are a UK taxpayer then you can make your donation go further by completing the Gift Aid declaration.
Using Gift Aid means that for every £1 you give Bridges to Belarus will receive an extra 25p from the Inland Revenue.
To qualify for Gift Aid, what you pay in income tax or capital gains tax must equal the amount the charity will claim in the tax year. If your circumstances should change – and you no longer pay tax on your income and capital gains equal to the tax that the charity reclaims, you can cancel your declaration. If you pay tax at the higher rate you can claim further tax relief in your Self – Assessment tax return.
We are also part of the Easy Fundraising Scheme - to start collecting please visit the Bridges to Belarus page. Easyfundraising.org works in a similar way to many other loyalty shopping sites, but instead of earning points when you shop, you raise a donation for your cause instead. It's as simple as that. There is no cost to you.You can shop with over 2,000 well known stores and each will donate up to 15% of what you spend. For example, John Lewis will donate 1%, Amazon 2.5%, The Body Shop 6%, some insurance retailers will even donate up to £30 simply for taking out a policy with them!
