Gift aid your donation

If you are a UK taxpayer, please sign up to the Gift Aid scheme when you donate to our shops. The Gift Aid scheme allows the Octavia Foundation to claim an additional 25% of the sale price of your donated goods from HMRC at no extra cost to you – increasing the value of your gift to the Octavia Foundation.

For example, if you donated a bag of clothing to our shops that was sold for £20, we would be able to claim an additional £5 in Gift Aid from the government, increasing the total value of the goods that you have donated to £25.

Since September 2011, more than 10,000 local people have signed up to the Gift Aid scheme when they donate to our shops and over £80,000 has been claimed back from HMRC in Gift Aid.
