Gift Aid


Make your gift go further for free!

If you are a UK tax payer, Gift Aid allows you to reclaim the tax you have already paid from the Inland Revenue. This means that if you pay the basic pay rate of income tax, we can claim an extra 25p on every £1 of your donation.

e.g.: If you donate £10 to BasicNeeds, with Gift Aid we could turn it into a donation of £12.50 at no cost to you! This extra money can make a real difference to our work.

BasicNeeds uses the money that it receives from Gift Aid for general expenditure, such as essential administration. This means that we can spend more of your donation on helping mentally ill people.

Please fill out the form below, post it to us and we we’ll do the rest!

    "I really feel with BasicNeeds that my money goes to the end user. With a 93% operating efficiency, I know that my money goes directly to where its needed, producing results on the ground. Other development organisations have to contract out to a lot of third parties, including data and statistics collection agencies. BasicNeeds does this all in-house which saves a lot of money and inefficiency. BasicNeeds is run on a good business model which I admire."
