Gift Aid

Gift Aid made simple. Make the most of Gift Aid for your local Explorer Scout Unit or to the District.

Gift Aid is a tax relief set up by the Government to enable charities to claim back 25p for every eligible £1 donation that is made to your charity.

Every Group, District and County/Area/Scottish Region and The Scouts HQ itself is a charity and so they’re able to claim 25% on eligible donations made to them by UK taxpayers. This includes any subscription fees you receive from parents or carers and any donations made directly to the charity.

I’ve given a donation to The Scouts, what do I do next?
