You can give in many ways. We will recover income tax from the taxman (if you pay uk tax), and then we will give your money away to all
the good causes you want to support!
Below you can find more information about giving as an individual, a company, or as a group.
There are also links to a number of different giving methods. If you have any queries please contact us.
For all donations, Gift Aid is the simplest and most effective method of tax-efficient giving.
You can make donations to the Dove Trust at any time.
Once you have given us a gift aid declaration, which you can do online, or by post, e-mail or telephone, you can then make donations to
the Dove Trust whenever you wish
Each donation you make is treated separately under the Gift Aid system, and there is no maximum limit to the amount you can give.
All you have to be is a UK taxpayer, paying tax of at least as much as we can reclaim.
We will reclaim the tax on your donations as soon as possible, and inform you when it is available for distribution.
Your gifts can be anonymous if you wish, and using the Dove Trust for your giving is the only way of making your giving tax-efficient
You can let the recipient know who you are if you wish - you stay in control of how you give at all times.
You can then split your donation (money or shares) to give to as many causes as you wish, whenever you want to.
You can make one-off gifts, or regular, with no administration required for the recipients of your gifts
If you are not a UK taxpayer, you can still give through the Dove Trust, and keep your giving administration simple, but we will not be
able to add tax to your account.
We administer the giving for groups who have come together for a common cause or purpose, such as a short-term 'mission' to a third
world country, a trip to help street children, or a working visit to an orphanage – the list is endless!
Or groups of people may come together to support a particular person or family long-term, through a serious illness, or to follow a vision
for a special work within a country or ethnic people-group.
Sometimes a church, or small charity or good cause finds that they don’t want the hassle of administering their giving, with form-filling
and collecting and handling money, and they find it so simple to ask us to do all this for them.
We will provide specially designed giving forms, or envelopes, for your group to give by standing order, cheque, cash, debit or credit
card, on a one-off or regular basis, and we will send all the gifts, together with the tax refunds we collect on behalf of the group's
taxpaying supporters, to the purpose for which you have formed the group.
We will provide sponsorship forms especially to enable fundraising for events (such as the sponsored run, walk or toddle!) or one-off
trips (such as a team trip to build a community centre in a shanty town overseas).
We can handle major offerings and collections at conferences and large events, increasing the income from those collections by
If you have a project, cause or good work and you need help with administering your supporters, just give us a call for a discussion
about our services.
If a business is a limited company, it will receive tax relief on its giving in a different way to individuals, and the individual
Gift Aid rules do not apply to corporate giving, so the Dove Trust cannot reclaim an extra 25% on giving from companies.
Businesses which are sole traders or partnerships are able to use the Gift Aid rules to enhance their giving, with the individuals
claiming tax relief in their Tax Return personally.
Limited companies, however, are able to treat their gifts as a business expense, and deduct the payments from their profits for the
year, reducing the Corporation Tax bill payable on the year's results!
Companies which wish to give regularly as they earn profits, or occasionally as and when they can afford to do so, can therefore make
gifts to the Dove Trust in their financial year, and make their community involvement (or corporate social responsibility) well planned and
Companies can also 'match' amounts raised for good causes by their employees, and boost local and national charities whenever they want,
from their subscriber account with the Dove Trust.
The administration for the company is minimal, with only the Dove Trust (who operate charitygiving.co.uk) to deal with, and the company
will always be able to keep track of its budget easily, with regular reports.
