Gift Aid

Did you know Nothe Fort (as part of the Weymouth Civic Society) is a registered charity Number 1148603? Which makes us a not for profit charitable limited company who reinvest all revenue after costs into the fabric of building.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid is a simple way for our charity or Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC) to increase the value of gifts of money we receive from UK taxpayers.

How does Gift Aid work?

When a UK taxpayer gives a gift of money to a charity or CASC, tax has already been paid on that money. This money therefore qualifies for Gift Aid. Because we are exempt from tax, we can claim an amount equal to the tax paid by a donor on their donation as a repayment from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).

How much is Gift Aid worth?

Gift Aid allows us to claim back 25p for every £1 you give to us, boosting the value of your donation by a quarter. All we need from you is permission to reclaim the tax you have paid to HMRC.

What do I need to do?

If you are a donor who has paid UK tax, please ‘Go even further’ and ask us for a Gift Aid declaration form & Annual Entry Pass.

Annual Entry Pass

Please make a donation, and if your donation is equal to or more than (the normal admission charge), the charity will give you free admission for a year (excluding up to 5 special event days published on our website).

Gift Aid makes a massive difference to attractions like ours. As you can see a little more really means a lot when visitors make this donation.

our donation will go towards the maintenance and development of this historic monument to help preserve for future generation.
