Green AC

Registered Charity No CASC 00227

Woodford Green AC with Essex Ladies is a registered Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC). We can claim 28p for every £1 donated, provided that it is a personal donation and the donor is a UK taxpayer.

What is Gift aid?

Gift Aid is a system administered by the Inland Revenue to promote charitable giving. It is important you understand it as it could boost the amount you raise by 25%.

For example, if you are a basic rate taxpayer, for every £1.28 you earn you only take home £1.00. If you give that £1.00 to charity with a Gift Aid declaration, Woodford Green AC with Essex Ladies can claim back the tax you paid to make your £1.00 back up to £1.28.

For sponsors/donors who pay tax at a higher or additional rate, Gift Aid can provide additional benefits. If they give £1 to Woodford Green AC with Essex Ladies we can still claim 25p from the Inland Revenue provided a Gift Aid declaration is in place. The individual can also declare the donation on tax returns alongside other charitable donations to gain additional tax relief.

It costs you absolutely nothing

A Gift Aid declaration is simply a statement that the donor is a UK taxpayer who wishes the charity to claim back the tax on the donation. It doesn’t even require a signature. Woodford Green AC with Essex Ladies simply need to have the home address and postcode of the donor / member in case their tax inspector wants to check out their claims. This information is not entered into our mailing database.

What do I have to do?

Complete the Gift Aid Declaration form and send it with your donation to the Subscription Secretary or Treasurer. Please note that tax can only be reclaimed on donations made by individuals who pay UK income or capital gains tax at least equal to the amount reclaimed on their donations in the current tax year.


volunteering is its own reward

While some people volunteer because they want to learn new skills, make friends or find a route back into work, others do it purely for the pleasure of making others smile.
