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 Afghanistan Emergency Appeal Needs Your Donations?

Your donations towards the Afghanistan Emergency Appeal will be used to provide life-saving food for poor and needy Afghan families.

Some dark statistics about life in Afghanistan:

  • 47% of Afghans live below the national poverty line.
  • 95% of the Afghanistan population does 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 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.

This is why supporting appeals like the Afghanistan Emergency Appeal and Afghanistan Earthquake Appeal is crucial, ensuring we are ready to help when disaster strikes.


Already grappling with hunger and poverty, the recent earthquake has drastically worsened conditions for Afghans, reversing any progress. They urgently need food and shelter. Your donation to the Afghanistan Earthquake Appeal will provide essential aid to families in dire need.

The disaster has further strained limited emergency services, exacerbating the risk of starvation and disease. Immediate support is critical to save lives and mitigate the crisis.

Donate now and make a tangible difference for Afghanistan Earthquake Victims.


Through funds raised from the Afghanistan Emergency Appeal, we’re aiding Afghan families within Afghanistan and supporting those forced to flee. We’re collaborating with refugees in Pakistan to ensure vulnerable children are safe and protected, and that there is sufficient food for fleeing Afghan families.

Through funds raised from the Afghanistan Emergency Appeal, we’re addressing critical water shortages. Building water pumps gives families access to clean water, crucial for health and survival.

  • 80% of Afghans lack access to safe drinking water.
  • Waterborne diseases are a leading cause of death.

Build a Water Pump in Afghanistan as a Sadaqah Jariyah for your loved ones. Save lives and reap the rewards in the hereafter.


Decades of wars and foreign interventions, a global pandemic, prolonged drought, political upheaval, and a lack of help from international powers will drive 97% of Afghans into a state of permanent poverty. Alhamdulillah, Allah has allowed the Islamic Welfare Trust 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 through our Afghanistan Emergency Appeal.

Donate generously to the Afghanistan Emergency Appeal and help us save lives in Afghanistan. Your support makes a crucial difference.


It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Allah said: ‘Spend, O son of Adam, and I shall spend on you.’”

Islamic Charity – Under the Supervision of Islamic Scholars

Alhamdulillah, our name clearly gives the message. We are an Islamic Charity aiming to help the Ummah in need. This is how our donation policy works:

  1. Your donation is your Amanah 
  2. We will spend your donation on the project you donated for.
  3. For every Emergency Appeal e.g. Pakistan Floods Appeal, Syria Emergency Appeal, Yemen Emergency Appeal, Gaza Emergency Appeal or Rohingya Crisis Appeal, we operate a 100% Donation Policy – no admin, no salary
  4. Zakat: 100% Zakat Policy
  5. For remaining appeals and projects we operate on a 90% donation policy. 10% is used for administration and marketing.

Disaster can Strike Anywhere, Anytime

Unfortunately, recent human history has emphatically confirmed this reality. Since the turn of the century, we have seen disaster after disaster unfold, some natural but predominantly manmade. As a Muslim Humanitarian Charity, it’s crucial for us to have emergency funds readily available to respond swiftly to these disasters.

Whether it’s the Gaza Emergency Appeal, Yemen Emergency Appeal, Syrian Refugee Crisis, Turkey-Syria Earthquake Appeal, Afghanistan Emergency Appeal, Pakistan Floods Appeal, Rohingya Crisis Appeal, or Africa Drought Appeal, our ability to continue helping those affected by these conflicts, wars, and crises relies on your ongoing support. We urge you to donate your Sadaqah and Zakat to these appeals, aiding in the protection of lives throughout the year and in times of crisis.

However, if you are looking to build a Masjid as Sadaqah Jariyah for your loved ones, or if you wish to build a water pump, donate a food pack, sponsor a sewing machine, or need to give Kaffarah for Breaking an Oath, consider our appeals. Donate to the Ramadan Food Appeal, the Ramadan Zakat Appeal, or simply donate your Zakat to assist the poor and needy around the world. Insha’Allah, donate with confidence for the sake of Allah.
