Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Muslim Global Relief to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Muslim Global Relief we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Muslim Global Relief 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 Muslim Global Relief 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 Muslim Global Relief 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.

Faith is an integral part of village communities like Kouse-Jingiri.
It brings people together. It gives strength and hope. It inspires social justice. Faith, and the community spirit it breeds, motivates people to improve themselves and their lives. But the thriving Muslim community of this village doesn’t have a substantial place for worship.

Located in upper eastern Ghana, Kouse-Jingiri is home to a multi-faith community of 1,907 people. MGR has been working with the villagers here for over a year. With your support we’ve supplied families with food packs last Ramadan; We’ve distributed Qurbani meat during Eid ul-Adha; We’ve recently kick-started development by installing a safe water source and public sanitation facilities.

Now Kouse-Jingiri’s population isn’t just thriving, it’s growing. What’s more, a recent rise in conversions to Islam in this region, has meant that its population of Muslims is growing too. There are currently 1,907 Muslims in Kouse-Jingiri. For prayers, they gather at a 20 year-old mud brick structure with a corrugated iron roof. By all accounts, it’s a safety hazard. Severe damage has left two of its walls close to collapsing. While the Imam’s prayer niche is being propped up with a wooden post.

As it is, the mosque is only able to accommodate 30 men and 30 women at any one time. The rest of the congregation is forced to pray outdoors. During rainy season or in extreme weather conditions, most of the villagers are often unable to attend prayer. With such limited space, using the masjid as a place for religious learning is simply out of the question.

The villagers of Kouse-Jingiri have appealed to MGR donors for a new mosque. An 80 square meter mosque would allow the Muslim community here to gather in prayer every Friday. It would serve as a space for religious study, where men and women hold weekly circles to better understand their faith. It would mean the local imam can run Qur’an lessons, so that children and adults alike can learn to read Arabic and recite the Holy Book.

It will cost £11,000 to give Kouse-Jingiri a new mosque. MGR has pledged to have it built and ready for use by Ramadan 2017. Can you help? Donate what you can to give Kouse-Jingiri a new Mosque Now. Or Donate £50 to our ‘Musallah Appeal’ for this mosque. All we need is 220 people gifting £50 to reach our target.
