Gift Aid

If you are a UK tax payer, you can Gift Aid your donation. This means that for every £1 you donate, we can reclaim an extra 25p from HMRC (Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs) – that would turn £10 into £12.50!

And the best part?

It doesn’t cost you anything extra – it’s basically just a great way of deciding where some of the tax you’re already paying goes, and what it goes into supporting!

So if you love the arts, you love The Dukes, and you pay tax, then Gift Aid!
