A donation on Facebook may be eligible for Gift Aid if the person making the donation is a taxpayer in the United Kingdom and the donation is being made to a UK-based nonprofit. During the donation process, a donor is able to indicate that the donation is eligible for Gift Aid.
What is Gift Aid?
Gift Aid is a tax relief program overseen by the UK government that increases the amount of a qualifying donation by 25%. For example, if a person donates £100 to a nonprofit, Gift Aid adds £25 to that donation. The nonprofit receives a total donation amount of £125.
What donations qualify for Gift Aid?
Not every donation made by a UK taxpayer to a UK-based charity qualifies for Gift Aid. and whether your donation qualifies for the program.
If during the applicable tax year, the amount of income and/or capital gains tax paid is less than the Gift Aid amount claimed, the taxpayer is responsible to pay the difference.
Accessing Gift Aid information for your charity
UK-based charities can access Gift Aid transaction information in their transaction report. The report's Gift Aid UK only column will contain a 'Yes' if Gift Aid applies to the donation or 'No' if it doesn't apply.
Note: Facebook only provides information about whether Gift Aid may apply to a donation. Facebook doesn't process Gift Aid claims.
Donations not using Facebook Payments to benefit UK charities are made to PayPal Giving Fund UK. PayPal Giving Fund UK claims the Gift Aid on these donations and grants it in full to benefitting charities. Learn more about
