What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid is a simple scheme that allows charities to recover the tax already paid on donations made at no extra cost to you. By reclaiming tax from Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (HMRC), Gift Aid is a great way for you to help Universal Harvest maximise the value of your donations. That means that for every £1 you donate, it could be worth an extra 25 pence to us, totalling your contribution to £1.25p.

How do I know my money won't end up in the wrong hands?

We will continuously publish how much we are getting in donations and how we are using it. We are a non-profitable organisation and all the usage of our donations will be going towards the running of the charity and the provisions of the food items.
