Gift Aid is a tax relief scheme, which allows UK charities to reclaim an extra 25% in tax on every eligible donation made by a UK taxpayer.
That means both NPT UK and NPT Transatlantic, as UK registered charities, can claim 25 pence through Gift Aid for every £1 contributed.
As a result, the value of your donation is automatically increased by 25%, meaning you can give more to the causes you care about.
Gift Aid also allows higher tax rate payers to claim tax relief for themselves through their tax return, in respect of the tax they have paid over and above basic rate tax.
NPT UK and NPT Transatlantic are eligible to claim an amount equal to basic rate tax (20%) on the gross gift from HMRC, which equates to 25% of the value of the donation.
Both will claim Gift Aid on your contribution and credit your donor-advised fund account for the amount of the reclaimed Gift Aid.
Donors who are higher-rate (40%) or additional rate (45%) taxpayers are eligible to claim the difference between their tax rate and the basic tax rate (20%) on the gross donation and can claim this on their self-assessment tax return.

To qualify for Gift Aid, the donor must:
You can only claim Gift Aid on new donations to charity. For example, transfers to an NPT UK DAF from another DAF programme, a charitable foundation or other charitable giving vehicle are not eligible for Gift Aid.
Finally, to claim Gift Aid on a contribution to your DAF, you must complete a Gift Aid declaration form.
