The Girls’ Day School Trust is a registered charity in the UK (charity number 306983), and as such your donations can benefit from tax efficient giving schemes.
Standard rate taxpayers - sign a Gift Aid form!
Gift Aid is a great opportunity to increase the value of
your gift at no extra cost to you. As a registered charity, the GDST can add a
total of 25% to the value of your gift if you are a UK taxpayer. For example, a
£100 gift will be worth £125 to Putney High School with the addition of Gift
Aid. To claim Gift Aid, all we need from you is a declaration confirming that
you pay tax in the UK.
You can download a Gift Aid form or sign the Gift Aid part of your gift form. Online donors will be prompted to do this as part of the online donation process
Higher rate taxpayers
If you are a higher-rate taxpayer in the UK, you may also be
entitled to claim back the difference between the higher and basic rates of tax
on the gross value of your donation at the time of your tax return.
Several companies offer a matched giving scheme for charitable donations. Download a list of employers, or speak to your Human Resources/Personnel
department to see if they would be interested in matching your gift to the GDST for Putney High School.
Payroll giving or Give As You Earn
You can make donations BEFORE tax through payroll giving,
which is run by the Charities Aid Foundation. Donations through Give As You Earn (GAYE) are deducted before tax so each £1.00 you give will only cost you 80p, and if you're a higher rate tax payer it will only cost you 60p.
