Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Islamic Welfare Trust to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Islamic Welfare Trust we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Islamic Welfare Trust to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I 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 I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Islamic Welfare Trust will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Islamic Welfare Trust receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

Why do we need to donate to Afghanistan Earthquake Appeal?

The earthquake struck in the middle of the night and caught everyone by surprise. Village after village and town after town was flattened. It is the deadliest earthquake to strike Afghanistan in over two decades. A country already struggling is having to face another challenge. As Muslims, it is our duty to take care of our fellow Muslims in need. Right now, there is no other community more deserving of our help than the people of Afghanistan. Donate to Afghanistan Earthquake Appeal and help save lives.

Afghanistan Earthquake: Eyewitness Account

Earthquakes in Afghanistan tend to cause significant damage, as the majority of houses in rural areas are unstable or poorly built. Locals have described horrific scenes of death and destruction in the aftermath of this deadly earthquake.

“The kids and I screamed and in a split second one of our rooms was destroyed. We ran outside and noticed that the whole street has been destroyed.”


“All houses in our street were either completely destroyed or partially damaged. I did not see a single house without damage.”


“Every street you go, you hear people mourning the deaths of their loved ones.”


Afghanistan Earthquake Victims Need Help Now!

Even before the earthquake, Afghans were facing hunger, poverty and starvation. The earthquake has taken the little progress made in complete reverse. Urgent help is needed to provide food and shelter aid for the Afghanistan Earthquake Victims. Donate generously to Afghanistan Earthquake Appeal and help deliver humanitarian aid to Afghan families in need.

Even before the earthquake, emergency services in Afghanistan didn’t have enough people and facilities, and now the earthquake has ruined the little they had. If urgent help doesn’t get to the Earthquake Victims, many more lives will be lost through starvation and malnutrition.

Earthquakes and Afghanistan

Afghanistan is prone to quakes, as it’s located in a tectonically active region, over a number of fault lines including the Chaman fault, the Hari Rud fault, the Central Badakhshan fault and the Darvaz fault.

Over the past decade more than 7,000 people have been killed in earthquakes in the country, the UN’s Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs reports. There are an average of 560 deaths a year from earthquakes.
