Gift Aid / Terms & Conditions
Through Gift Aid you can boost your donation to the Traverse
Theatre by 25p for every £1 you donate. Gift Aid is claimed by the
charity from the tax you pay for the current tax year. Your address
is needed to identify you as a current UK taxpayer.
You can complete one of two declarations; single - which covers
just one donation and a specified amount - or multiple - which
covers the present donation, those made in the last four years and
all future donations.
In completing either of the above declarations you are declaring
that you are a UK taxpayer and that you understand if you pay less
Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax in the current tax year than
the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all your donations then it is
your responsibility to pay the difference.
Please notify the Traverse Theatre if you:
- want to cancel an existing declaration
- change your name or home address
- no longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital
If you pay Income Tax at the higher or additional rate and want
to receive the additional relief due to you, you must include all
your Gift Aid donations on your Self-Assessment tax return or ask
HM Revenue and Customs to adjust your tax code.
The Traverse Theatre may contact you following an online
donation in order to ascertain your Gift Aid status. Any contact
will be made in accordance with your Data Protection
