Gift Aid is a Government scheme that enables charities to claim the tax that supporters have already paid on their donations. To allow us to claim this back you must be a UK taxpayer and have paid sufficient income and/or capital gains tax to cover the amount Macmillan will reclaim in each tax year.
This means that Macmillan is able to reclaim tax on voluntary donations made by your Coffee Morning guests once they have:
1. Made an individual donation.
2. Filled in all the spaces on your Gift Aid sheet (which you’ll find in your Coffee Morning Kit.
3. Ticked that all-important Gift Aid box.
Gift Aiding your donation, means we can increase your guests’ donations by 25p for every £1 without costing them another penny!
*Gift Aid does not apply to non-UK taxpayers, Isle of Man and Channel Islands residents.
Once the sheet is filled in, you can send it back to us using the freepost envelope in your pack, or to:Freepost RTLS-JTZR-RYAZ
Yes. We can send you a personal text code, which your guests can use to donate to your event if they don’t have cash or can’t make it on the day.
When someone texts your code, we’ll add a £5 charge to their phone bill if they’re on a contract, or take £5 of credit if they’re on pay as you go.
The number 70550 is Macmillan’s own short code, for which all of the mobile phone operators have agreed to donate 100% of the text cost to help people affected by cancer.
