Make your donations go further...

How Gift Aid works

We are here to help your hospitals- and we could not do that without your amazing support.

The UK Government’s Gift Aid Scheme allows anyone who is a UK taxpayer to make a Gift Aid declaration, which means that East Kent Hospitals Charity can reclaim tax on your donation. So, for every £1 you have donated to us, we could claim an extra 25p from the Government!

It’s so simple- if you have donated to us within the last four years, and are a UK Taxpayer, you just need to fill in our very short Gift Aid form below, and we can do the rest.

Once you have signed your Gift Aid declaration, it is valid for all gifts you make in the future, too.

With this extra 25%, you will be helping us to continue to fund wellbeing initiatives for our amazing NHS staff, purchase innovative equipment that make a huge difference to patients, and make your local hospital environment the very best that it can be.

Terms and Conditions: If you are a UK Taxpayer and would like East Kent Hospitals Charity to reclaim tax on donations that you have made in the past four years, and any future donations you may make, you must be aware that if you pay less income or capital gains tax than the amount claimed on all donations in that tax year (April 6th- April 5th), it is your responsibility to pay the difference.

Gift Aid cannot be claimed on donations make on behalf of a group, or a collection. 

Please let us know if you want to cancel this declaration, change your name or home address, or no longer pay sufficient tax on your income or capital gains. If you are a higher rate taxpayer, you can claim personal tax relief via a self-assessment tax return, or ask HMRC to adjust your tax code. 

You can make a declaration by filling in our Gift Aid form below, or by contacting us. You have 30 days to cancel, if necessary, before a claim is made. You are able to cancel at any time after that, if your circumstance change.
