What is Gift Aid?
Gift Aid is a simple way for a charity like Doncaster Mind to increase the value of gifts of money we recieve from UK taxpayers.
How does Gift Aid Work?
When a UK taxpayer gives a gift of money to charity, tax has already been paid on that money. This money therefore qualifies for Gift Aid. Because we are exempt from tax, we can claim an amount equal to the tax paid by a donor on their donation as a repayment from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).
How much is Gift Aid worth?
Gift Aid allows us to claim back 25p for every £1 you give to us, boosting the value of your donation by a quarter. All we need from you is permission to reclaim the tax you have paid to HMRC.
What do I need to do?
If you are a donor who has paid UK tax, please "Go Even Further" and ask us for a Gift Aid Declaration form. You can download a copy of our gift aid form below.

Becoming a Trustee
Our Trustees are volunteers with a variety of skills and abilities. Some have been carers or users of mental health services previously and all our Trustees contribute to making Doncaster Mind one of the key providers of mental health services in Doncaster. They do this in their own free time. Hence, one of the most valuable contributions that you make is to get involved as a Trustee.
