Visitors at Tyntesfield, Somerset

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.

Under this scheme, if you’re not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission; or
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we’ll offer you the Gift Aid Admission prices. But it’s entirely up to you which ticket you choose. If you want the Standard Admission instead, just let us know when you come to pay.

How does the Gift Aid on Entry scheme benefit the Trust?
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid* - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to us as shown:

Gift Aid admission
Amount paid by visitor: £11.00
Tax refund from Government*: £2.75
Total received by the Trust: £13.75

Standard admission
Amount paid by visitor: £10.00
Tax refund from Government*: £0.00
Total received by the Trust: £10.00

Money raised from this scheme goes towards vital conservation and restoration projects at the place you’re visiting.

Gift Aid and membership
Most National Trust members already pay their subscriptions using Gift Aid, helping us to reclaim many millions of pounds every year at no extra cost to themselves. If you’re a member and are not already paying in this way, find out how you can make a Gift Aid declaration to us and download the postal form. Or you can make your declaration by simply telephoning our Supporter Services Centre on 0844 800 1895.

*Gift Aid donations must be supported by a valid Gift Aid declaration and a Gift Aid declaration can only cover donations made by an individual for him/herself or for him/herself and members of his/her family.
