Tax Efficient Giving

Making the Most of your Donation

The tax system allows donors to maximise their gifts in a number of ways.

Gift Aid & Tax Relief

As a recognised charity, all gifts made by UK taxpayers to The KEHS Trust can be augmented by Gift Aid, which increases the value of your gift by 25% at no extra cost to you. Higher and additional rate taxpayers may also be able to also claim back part of the value of the gift themselves. To claim tax relief, enter your gift in the Gift Aid section of your tax return. There are additional benefits when donating property, stock or shares.

Self Assessment

If you complete a Self Assessment tax return and are entitled to a tax refund, you can choose to have all or part of this repayment given to The Trust.

To nominate The Trust to receive all or part of your tax refund, you must enter the Trust's unique identification code on your Self Assessment tax return. Please contact the Development Office if you have any queries about our unique identification code.

Charities Aid Foundation (CAF)

The Charities Aid Foundation helps individuals and companies give to charity more tax-effectively. The CAF will help you, or your chosen charity, claim tax relief – reducing your tax bill or increasing the value of your donation. For more information, visit
