Gift Aid

Gift Aid is a way for charities such as CGS to increase the value of monetary gifts from UK taxpayers by claiming back the basic rate tax paid by the donor on the donation. It can increase the value of donations by 25% at no extra cost to you, the donor. Gift Aid is worth a considerable amount of money to CGS, so if you are eligible please take the time to complete the declaration on our donation form.
