In order to Gift Aid your donation you must tick the box on the form.

I want to Gift Aid my donation and any donations I make in the future or have made in the past 4 years to Dorchester Poverty Action Group.

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.


  • Want to cancel this declaration at any time
  • change your name or home address
  • no longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains.

If you pay Income Tax at the higher or additional rate and want to receive the

your Self-Assessment tax return or ask HM Revenue and Customs to adjust your
tax code.
