Gift Aid is a scheme which allows the Clan Project to claim from HMRC, the basic rate of tax their donors have paid. Gift Aid increases the value of donations by 25%, so it means even more money goes to the project – and it won't cost you extra. To allow us to claim Gift Aid, you must be a UK taxpayer and supply your address.

Appeal : Select the appeal fund you'd like to donate to or use the 'General Fund' if you'd just like to donate to the project as a whole.
