Add Gift Aid to your donation for The RSPCA

Leeds, Wakefield & District Branch


Gift Aid can increase the amount of your donation to us by 25%!

By saying ‘yes’ to Gift Aid when you donate items to an RSPCA Leeds, Wakefield & District branch shop we can claim back 25% tax from HM Revenue and Customs when we sell the goods. That means more money to help continue to care for dogs, cats & rabbits in our local area. Click here to complete your form now. 

What is Gift Aid & how does it work?

Gift Aid can only be claimed on a sum of money. When you donate items to us or make a donation, HMRC allow us to sell those donated items on your behalf. When your items are sold, we will let you know how much you have helped us raise and confirm that you are happy for us to treat the money as a Gift Aid donation. We will then claim the extra money from HMRC – you do not need to do anything. The value of your generous donation will then be increased with gift aid, at no extra cost to you. Gift Aid can also be claimed on one off donations & increased by 25% if you are eligible to claim Gift Aid. Click here to complete a gift aid form.
