What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid is a Treasury operated scheme that means registered charities can reclaim the tax already paid on donations made to them. When visiting the Museum it means you can offer to make a donation equivalent to the admission price when purchasing your tickets. If you are a UK tax payer the Museum can claim the tax you have already paid on your donation, all we need is your name and address. These details are only used for the Gift Aid scheme. This means we can claim back 25p in every £1 donated and makes a significant contribution to the running costs of the Museum.
