WHAT IS OUR SPENDING POLICY?
Ummah Charity International is accountable to its supporters and to those who look to us for support. It is important to keep costs at a minimum so that most money is spent effectively on those in need and adheres to our ethos of treating everyone with dignity.
HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED?
There are so many ways to get involved, from hiking and raising awareness to fundraising for our events. Volunteering is a great way to develop your skills as well as supporting our fight against poverty. Please go to our volunteers’ section for more information.
HOW DOES GIFT AID WORK?
You can Gift Aid your donation at no extra cost. Ummah Charity International can reclaim the basic rate tax from HM Revenue and Customs (25p for every £1 you donate). For example with Gift Aid, you can turn £20 into £25 or £100 into £125. All you have to do is make a Gift Aid declaration.
HOW DO I QUALIFY FOR GIFT AID?
If you’re a UK taxpayer (Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax) you can declare Gift Aid. For every £1 you donate to Ummah Charity International in a financial year, you must have paid 25p in Income or Capital Gains Tax in the same financial year to qualify for Gift Aid (Inheritance Tax, Council Tax and VAT do not qualify towards Gift Aid).
