Tax Relief

Individuals and companies can obtain tax relief on charitable donations, including cash, shares, land and buildings.

At Shropshire Community Foundation, we are happy to work with you or your financial adviser if you’d like to make a donation eligible for tax relief.

Gift Aid

Gift Aid allows Shropshire Community Foundation to increase the value of your donation by 25%* at no extra cost to you, provided you pay tax in the UK.

If you are a higher rate taxpayer, you can receive the higher rate element through your tax return. If you are considering making a significant gift, we suggest that you seek the independent advice of a specialist professional adviser.
