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.

MGR-friut-tree-gaza-550x325

The olive is a tough tree with strong roots. It thrives in calcareous land, in a coastal climate, with little need for watering. Burn or fell it, and it can still grow back from the roots. In Palestine, the olive tree is more than just a source of food, income and shade. It is symbolic of the Palestinian people’s resilience, resistance and attachment to their land.

In the Gaza strip, an estimated 31 Km2 of land is cultivated with olive trees with over 20,000 families depending fully or partially on the olive harvest.

MGR has been supporting families in Gazan villages by planting olive trees. A gift of just 50 olive trees has given more than 10 Palestinian families food security, and the means to earn a living through olive farming.

The project has also created jobs, where local people are hired to level, prepare and fertilize the selected land prior to cultivation. The workers are charged with sourcing, transporting, planting and watering the gifted saplings.

MGR’s Gaza team also runs an awareness raising sessions for the farmers and beneficiary families, with every batch of gifted trees. The sessions provide them with skills and best practice techniques for olive farming.

Proud of their new trees, the farmers are nurturing them with care and devotion. More than anything, these trees have given them confidence and hope for a better future. With them, they’re working to improve their economic situation even in an ongoing humanitarian crisis. With them, they can remain rooted to their homeland.

The cost of gifting one olive tree is Gaza is £20. Donate to our Grow a Fruit Tree Project today. Give hope through sustainable solutions to people who just need a little support to gain economic stability.
