Can your company match donations to Moreton Hall Educational Trust Ltd?

The following companies in the United Kingdom are currently enrolled on the matching gift scheme. This means that they will match gifts to charities donated by their employees. If your employer is not listed, please contact your Human Resources department to find out if they operate a matching gift scheme. A number of companies abroad also operate similar schemes, particularly those in the US.

In the majority of cases, these companies will match your donation pound for pound up to a set amount; a number of these companies will even double-match. If you are interested in donating through the matching gift scheme, please contact your Human Resources department who should be able to give you a form to fill in confirming the gift you have made. You then send that form to us so we can confirm receipt of the gift. By using this scheme you can donate double and it only costs you half.

Gift Aid

Making the most of your gift

Completion of a Gift Aid declaration allows Moreton Hall Educational Trust, as a charity, to reclaim income tax at the basic rate, on any gift you make. This means every £10 you give can be worth £12.50 to Moreton Hall at no cost to you.

The declaration applies to any future gift you may make, although no future obligation is implied. You must pay an amount of tax (UK income and/or capital gains tax) at least equal to the tax that will be reclaimed on your gift in the relevant tax year. You may cancel the declaration at any time by notifying the Foundation Office. 

Higher-rate tax payers can claim further tax relief on their personal income tax returns.

A gift of £100 may therefore cost the donor just £75.00 but be worth £125 to Moreton Hall. Every little helps. Your donations, in whatever form or amount, will be most welcome and greatly appreciated.
