Frequently Asked Questions
Is payment secure?Yes. We use the services of a company called Stripe, who process card payments for many well-known websites. Your card details are passed encrypted directly to their servers; they do not pass through our own web server, even temporarily.
What charges are deducted?
Stripe charge us a card processing fee, which is very reasonable within the payment processing industry (substantially lower than, say, PayPal).
Other charity donations sites (such as Just Giving) deduct their own fees (in addition to card processing fees), before passing donations on to the charity; we are handling donations ourselves, so there are no further deductions of this sort.
How does Gift Aid work?Gift Aid allows us, as a registered charity, to reclaim basic rate Income Tax from your donation. Higher rate tax payers can claim back the difference between basic rate and higher or additional rate, using their Self Assessment Tax Return. At current tax rates, this means we can reclaim 25p for every pound given. If you tick the box above to ask us to treat this donation as a Gift Aid Donation, you agree to the following statement:
I am a U.K. Tax Payer. Please treat this gift as a Gift Aid Donations. I confirm I have paid or will pay an amount of Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax for the current tax year (6 April to 5 April) that is at least equal to the amount of tax all charities (including Churches) and Community Amateur Sports Clubs that I donate to will reclaim on my gifts for that tax year. I understand that other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify. I understand the charity will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.
