Gift aid

You can add 20p to the value of every pound you give at no cost to yourself by signing a Gift Aid declaration. You must be a UK taxpayer to complete this form

You must also pay an amount of income tax and/or capital gains tax at least equal to the tax that LJWB reclaims on your donations in the tax year.

To calculate the gift aid amount please click here.

Please click to download a Gift Aid Form.

High earners tax

Every £1,000 you donate could be worth over £1,800 to LJWB*.

If you are a UK tax payer and you have given us permission to do so, we can claim Gift Aid on your donation. To give us permission please call on 0113 218 5848.

We can only claim back the basic tax rate of 20% in Gift Aid. However, if you pay a higher rate of income tax (40% or above) you could be entitled to a tax rebate on your donation, worth the difference between the basic rate of tax and your higher rate. This extra could make a real difference to your donation.

Claim and donate your rebate

If you complete a self-assessment tax return you can use it to request any tax rebates you are due. You can donate any rebate directly to LJWB when you do your online return, or if you complete a paper return fill in the SA100 Charity Form.

If you do not complete a self-assessment, you can contact your local tax office and reclaim the tax on your donations using a P810 form.

If you have any queries about your tax position, contact HMRC on 0845 9000 444 or visit their website at

* This amount assumes the donor is a 45% taxpayer and that Gift Aid is claimed on both the original donation and the tax rebate.
