The Little Sisters of the Poor can now accept Gift Aid on all secure online donations.

As an exempt charity, the Little Sisters of the Poor are eligible to reclaim basic rate tax on qualifying donations from UK tax payers.

This means you can increase your donation by 25p for every £1 you donate, making your gift go even further to supporting vulnerable older people, at no extra cost to you.

Please note that Gift Aid can only be reclaimed on;

  • Donations made by individuals who pay UK income or capital gains tax at a rate at least equal to the amount reclaimed on their donations in the current tax year (a person living overseas can still claim Gift Aid provided that they are a UK taxpayer and can satisfy the Gift Aid declaration in the donation process).
  • Personal donations (NOT collections, group fundraising, on behalf of a company or sponsorship payments)

Your Gift Aid status will be saved for the next time you donate, and can be amended at any time to show a change of Gift Aid eligibility or name / address details.
