Give a Gift of Protecting Birds this Holiday

Treat someone this holiday season by giving a gift in their name

In need of secret Santa? Inspiring your grandchildren? Or giving to a person who has everything?

By choosing to gift a donation in their name you are supporting BirdLife’s vital work to protect one of the most threatened habitats in the world.

Why protect coastal wetlands? They are among the most threatened sites in the world and are being devastated by pollution, disturbance, drainage, and development projects. The problem is urgent: thousands of birds end up stranded in the middle of migration, with nowhere to eat or rest on their long journeys. Exhausted and starving, many of them will sadly die. But with your help it doesn’t have to be this way.

Your gift will be smartly presented, sent digitally direct to your desired inbox, keeping your waste and carbon low this holiday. Here at BirdLife we strive to reduce our environmental footprint and choosing to gift this way means you are too, thank you.

You can take advantage of the optional gift message too! The donation amount will not be stated in the gift email.

Happy Holidays,

BirdLife International Team

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows BirdLife International to claim tax back on eligible donations. If you pay tax in the UK, it means that for every £1 you donate to BirdLife International we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the “Yes” box, I agree I would like BirdLife International to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that BirdLife International will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When BirdLife International receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we’re entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
