Gift Aid

DSC00568We 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.

If all of our members signed up to Gift Aid, we'd have more to spend conserving heritage buildings, gardens and parks in the Czech Republic. On average membership, you could be giving The Friends several pounds extra a year, without spending a single penny.


Making a gift aid declaration

If you are a UK taxpayer, have a membership subscription, or have made donations to the Friends, 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 from the HRMC 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 Gift Aid Declaration Form and return it to: Milena Currall, Membership Secretary, The Friends of Czech Heritage, Flat 15, Twynholm Mansions, Lillie Road, London SW6 7NX
