Gift Aid

If you donate, or subscribe to the Dorset Archives Trust please consider completing a gift aid form. If you’re a UK taxpayer, Gift Aid increases the value of your charity donations by 25% because we can reclaim the basic rate of tax on your gift at no extra cost to you.

Gift Aid Declaration … it gives us 25% more

If you are a UK taxpayer please consider paying your subscription or donation as Gift Aid. This enables the Dorset Archives Trust to reclaim the tax on your subscription or donation. Please complete the Gift Aid declaration below.

I am a UK taxpayer and it is my intention that all membership subscriptions and donations made by me to the Dorset Archives Trust now, in the future or have made in the last 4 years should be treated as Gift Aid Donations.

I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year it is my responsibility to pay any difference.

Gift Aid is reclaimed by Dorset Archives Trust from the tax you pay for the current tax year. Your address is needed to identify you as a current UK taxpayer.

Please notify us if, in future, you wish to cancel this declaration, change your name or home address, no longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains.

If you pay Income Tax at the higher or additional rate and want to receive the additional tax relief

due to you, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self-Assessment tax return or ask

HMRC to adjust your tax code.


Please return this form to the Dorset Archives Trust.
