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.

Some dark statistics about life in Afghanistan 

  • 47% of Afghans lives below the national poverty line
  • 95% of the Afghanistan population do not have enough food to eat
  • For every 1,000 babies born in Afghanistan 60 die before the age of 5

If the trend continues, everyone but the top 1-2% will fall into permanent poverty.

Afghanistan on the brink of universal poverty

A global pandemic, prolonged drought, political upheaval and lack of help from international powers will take 97% of Afghans into the state of permanent poverty. Alhamdulillah, Allah has given Islamic Welfare Trust a chance to help their Afghan brothers and sisters in need. We are on the ground delivering life-saving food and water aid to hundreds of Afghan families facing starvation.

£35 could provide food for a family of 5 for up to a month

£250 could provide clean drinking water for a family by building a water pump for them

£15 could provide hot meals for 10 poor people

£100 could provide financial support for a widow or poor family

Food for Afghan Refugees

Through funds raised from Afghanistan Emergency Appeal, as well as helping the Afghan families in Afghanistan, we’re providing support to those who’ve been forced to flee Afghanistan. We’re working with refugees in Pakistan, to ensure vulnerable children are kept safe and protected and there is enough food for fleeing Afghan families.
