If you can make a voluntary donation of 10%, this will help fund our charitable work in the UK and around the world. If you donate and are a UK taxpayer, it makes your whole payment eligible for Gift Aid.
Are you a UK tax payer? If so, every £1 you give could be worth £1.25 to us, helping us fund our charitable work.
Gift Aid is a form of tax relief and, as a charity, we are able to claim back the tax on your admission to the Museum as we can class your admission as a “charitable donation”.
We can claim back Gift Aid on your “donation” as long as you have agreed to pay the higher admission price that includes an additional 10% donation.
Regulations laid down by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) require all charitable attractions to ask visitors for an additional 10% donation on their admission before Gift Aid can be claimed.
By claiming Gift Aid on your donation we will gain an additional 25p for every £1 you have given us. This money will help fund our valuable charitable work.
Please treat my payment as a Gift Aid donation. I confirm I have paid or will pay an amount of Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax for the current tax year (April 6 2022 to April 5 2023) that is at least equal to the amount of tax that all the charities or Community Amateur Sports Clubs will reclaim on my gifts for this tax year. I understand that other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify. I understand the charity will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give. I acknowledge that these Gift Aided tickets are for myself or members of my family.
I am unable to Gift Aid but I would like to make the additional donation in order to help with the vital conservation work.
I do not want to Gift Aid and I do not want to make the additional donation.
