We are a charity. Gift Aid is a government scheme where charities can reclaim money on your contribution from the HM Revenue & Customs.

If you are a UK taxpayer we can reclaim 25p for every £1 you give us.

Give more

If all of our members signed up to Gift Aid, we’d have more to spend conserving the places you enjoy.

Making a gift aid declaration

If you are a UK taxpayer, have a membership subscription, or have made donations to the Trust, you could increase the value of every £1 you give to £1.25, by joining the Gift Aid scheme. And it's at no cost to you.

Gift Aid allows us to reclaim from the Government the tax that you have already paid on your membership subscriptions and donations. If all our members agreed to Gift Aid we could claim millions of pounds more each year - vital extra funds that would help us in our important work.

To make your subscription worth even more to us, all you need to do is download the declaration form and return it to: The National Trust, PO Box 574, Manvers, Rotherham, S63 3FH.
