Gift Aid (UK Only)

I confirm I am a UK taxpayer and would like Down Syndrome International to treat as Gift Aid donations all qualifying gifts of money made (check all that apply):

In checking the above:

  • I confirm I have paid or will pay an amount of Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax for each tax year (6 April to 5 April) that is at least equal to the amount of tax that all the charities or 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 for every £1 I donate currently and in future at the rate HM Revenue and Customs stipulates.
Please add any supplemental information here, e.g., commemoration details, etc.


You can call us on 0044 (0)1395 493108 and we can arrange a payment by Credit Card, Debit Card or Electronic Transfer.


Please make cheques payable to "Down Syndrome International" and send to our International Office.

Gift Aid (UK Only)

If you are a UK taxpayer, you can increase the value of your donation at no extra cost to you. The Gift Aid scheme means your gift can increase in value by 25% at no extra cost to you. This would mean that a gift of £5 a month would actually be worth £6.25 a month to Down Syndrome International.

If you would like us to claim back the tax on any donation you make then you can:

  • Donate online using the portal on this page which includes a Gift Aid declaration;
  • Contact our International Office to receive a Gift Aid Declaration Form.

You can also visit HMRC's Gift Aid information page for further guidance.
