Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Minority Rights Group to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Minority Rights Group we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Minority Rights Group to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Minority Rights Group will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Minority Rights Group receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

Why donate to MRG?

MRG has championed the rights of minorities for 50 years.  We have achieved significant victories at every level from supporting remote community-led organisations, all the way to the UN. At various times in our history, we have struggled to meet our core costs and keep afloat. These occasions often correspond to moments in history when the appetite for combating structural discrimination is low, and when identity politics are used to raise fears.

With your support we can continue this important work. All major Debit Cards / Credit Cards are accepted.

To mark our 50th anniversary, our Council have agreed that establishing an Endowment Fund is the best way to mark this occasion and offer MRG greater financial security going forward – please click here to read about this Appeal and a list of Thank-You’s!

If you would like to donate via cheque, please make payable to Minority Rights Group and we will happily return a receipt to your email or postal address.
