Why is Gift Aid important?
Gift Aid increases the value of your donation by 25% – at no extra cost to you – so it’s a huge help if you can Gift Aid your sponsorship or donation.
All you have to do is tick the Gift Aid option when you donate online or by post.
If you’re a UK taxpayer, you must have paid income or capital gains tax equal to the tax that will be claimed by all the charities that you donate to in the same tax year.
The reclaimed tax will be used to help fund the administration costs of the charity – so more of your actual donation will go directly to those in need.
Gift Aid can only be added if you are donating your own money; it cannot be reclaimed if the donations are made by companies or collected from others, even if they are UK taxpayers. We regret that Gift Aid cannot be claimed on payments for ticketed events.
Is my payment secure?
We only use secure systems with standard banking safety features to ensure payment and financial data cannot be compromised. All online payments are securely processed via PayPal, KeyIVR or SmartDebit, and no financial data is retained on our servers.
Can I make regular payments?
Yes, of course! In fact, small payments made regularly can make a huge difference to us. You can set up an affordable monthly direct debit and help us build orphanages and support children and families in poverty for just pennies a day.
Automatic monthly payments are the most efficient way to support The Amir Khan Foundation because they reduce our administration costs. As a regular source of funding, they also allow us to plan ahead more effectively and respond quickly to a crisis.
Can I get a refund?
Under Charity Commission rules, we are not usually able to give card refunds for donations made through a website.
Where refunds are granted it is at the charity’s discretion. However, if you experience any problems, please contact us on 03000 121 000.
