(If both persons wish to separately give Gift Aid for other donations, Please either Contact Us, speak to us at an event or download the Membership Form and complete the relevant section and return it to us).
GIFT AID DECLARATION
"I want The Penarth Civic Society (c/n 1182348) to treat all donations I make from the date of this declaration, or have made in the past 4 years, as Gift Aid donations, until I notify you otherwise. I am a UK taxpayer and 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."
Please notify the charity if you:
want 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 HM Revenue and Customs to adjust your tax code.
