Gift Aid - Don't let the taxman keep your money!

By Gift Aiding your donations they are worth almost a third more to us, at no extra cost to you!

If you are a higher-rate tax payer then you can also claim additional tax relief of 23p for every £1 donated!

What we need to enable us to claim Gift Aid:

  • Your full name and home address (complete and return a Gift Aid Declaration Form.doc / Gift Aid Declaration Form.pdf)
  • A donation made from a personal bank or building society account - cheques made payable to: Birmingham Community Foundation (*we cannot claim Gift Aid on donations from company accounts)
  • For you to be paying income tax or capital gains tax which at least equals the amount the Birmingham Community Foundation will claim in the tax year.

*As a company: Simply gross up the amount of your donation to the Birmingham Community Foundation, and claim a full tax rebate on that amount through your corporation tax return.

  • What We Do

    Our two broad purposes are:
    To work with the community supporting local voluntary and community activity through a programme of constructive grant making; and
    To work with local donors by pooling the donations of philanthropically minded individuals and community-minded companies into an Endowment more
