Gift Aid Declaration

If you pay tax and sign a Gift Aid Declaration then Waverley Ensemble can reclaim an extra 25p for every pound given as a donation or paid as a subscription. You need to this only once not for every separate donation.

Paying tax refers to tax actually paid ie for amounts above the tax-free allowances, including:

  • income tax whether collected by employer or pension fund or paid separately by yourself,
  • tax on interest,
  • tax on dividends from shares and unit trusts, and
  • capital gains tax.

If you pay tax at the higher rate you can also claim your own tax reduction by declaring the gifts on your tax return.

You can make a declaration once, and then it applies for all gifts in any of the past four years and into the future, you do not need to make a new declaration for each future gift or payment.

Please either print, complete and return the WaverleyEnsembleGiftAidForm or make the declaration as follows:

You can make your declaration by email by copying the following (with your details added) into an email and sending it to

The sum that I am transferring to the Waverley Ensemble CIO is intended as a qualifying gift under Gift Aid.

Please treat in this manner, until I notify you otherwise, all transfers of money made in
– the last 4 years
– today
– and in the future.

I understand that the Ensemble will reclaim 25p tax for every £1 that I pay.

I am a UK taxpayer and 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 it is my responsibility to pay any difference (I understand that HMRC may make checks)

I will notify you if I cease to pay sufficient tax or change my name or address, or otherwise wish to cancel this declaration.
