If you pay tax at a rate of 40% or above, you can claim back 20% (the difference between the higher and basic rate of tax on your donation). You can do this:

       - Through your self-assessment tax return
       - By asking HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) to amend your tax code

For example:

  1. You donate £5000 to Send a Cow
  2. We claim Gift Aid to make your donation £6250
  3. You can personally claim back £1250.00 (£6250 x 20%)
A £5000 donation only costs you £3750.
