Tax Efficient Giving

Gift Aid

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 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.

Payroll Giving

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.

Leave a Legacy

Gabrieli’s work continues to surprise and inspire audiences, nearly forty years since we were first established. Did you know that you can help secure Gabrieli’s future for many more years to come by pledging a gift to us in your will? Legacies of any size have a huge impact on our work, and offer the chance for long-standing friends to continue their support after their lifetime, enabling Gabrieli to continue its pioneering artistic and educational programmes and benefitting future generations. It is possible to leave unrestricted gifts that allow us to use your donation freely, or you can specify how you would like your legacy to be used – perhaps for a recording, performance of a particular work, or to support Gabrieli Roar.

Pay Less Tax

As Gabrieli is a registered UK charity, if your estate is worth over £325,000 the amount of your gift can be deducted from your estate before Inheritance Tax is calculated. For example, if you leave 10% of your estate to Gabrieli, you could reduce your IHT bill from 40% to 36%.

How To Leave Us A Gift

If you would like to leave us a legacy in your will, a short clause can be added when your will is prepared. Alternatively, your solicitor can attach a written instruction (called a ‘codicil’) to your existing will. A codicil requires the signature of two independent witnesses. Your solicitor will be able to advise you on the correct wording and procedure for adding Gabrieli as a beneficiary in your will, and we would be very happy to discuss the process with you in person.

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. To learn more about tax efficient giving, or to make a donation to Gabrieli, please contact:
