Gift Aid is a simple scheme that allows charities to recover the tax paid on donations made in the last four years. This means you can increase your donation to Unicef by 25 pence for every £1 you give at no extra cost to yourself. Gift Aid allows us to help even more children.

If you are a UK tax payer and not already using an alternative tax scheme such as the Charities Aid Foundation or Payroll Giving, you can Gift Aid your donations now.

How do I start?

You can add Gift Aid to your donation now by downloading and completing our Gift Aid declaration form or by calling our Supporter Care Team on 0300 330 5580 (Monday to Friday 8am to 6pm) who can take your details over the telephone. 

You can also contact the Supporter Care Team to make an amendment to your Gift Aid declaration, or request a statement of your giving in the last tax year, by calling 0300 330 5580.

Alternatively you can email the Supporter Care Team at: remember to include your full name and address details and, if appropriate, the date that your Gift Aid status changed.
