Tax Efficient Giving
There are many different ways to give to Gabrieli, and to enhance your gift to us so that we can make your support work even harder.
If you are a UK taxpayer, all donations made to Gabrieli are eligible for Gift Aid. This means that for every pound you give us, we get an extra 28 pence from the Inland Revenue; so a donation of £10 becomes £12.50 with Gift Aid.
Higher and additional rate taxpayers can claim personal tax relief on the difference between the basic rate and the applicable rate of income tax through their self-assessment tax return or by using a P810 form. This means that if you make a donation of £800, it will be worth £1,000 to Gabrieli after Gift Aid while costing you only £550 after personal tax relief if you are an additional rate (45%) taxpayer or £600 if you are a higher rate (40%).
When supporting us via our online giving platform here simply follow the instructions to Gift Aid your donation. If you would prefer to send us a cheque please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy of our Gift Aid form.
Gifts Of Shares
Tax relief can be gained on most shares given to charity. So, if £1,000 worth of your shares is donated (and if you are a higher-rate taxpayer), your tax bill will be reduced by £400. In addition, the transaction escapes the charge to Capital Gains Tax.
Giving directly from your salary means that the donation is deducted before tax is levied. For basic-rate taxpayers, this means a £20 monthly donation actually costs just £15.60; for 40% higher-rate taxpayers the same donation costs just £12 and for 50% higher-rate taxpayers just £10.
By supporting Gabrieli in this way you are securing our ambitious artistic and educational programmes for future generations, and ensuring that our work lives on for many years to come.
