Whether you’re buying a real tree or an artificial one this year, why not plant a FestiviTree (a mango or cashew nut tree) as well in Kenya to help the communities we work with celebrate Christmas too.

Our Christmas goal is to plant 1,000 new trees in the tropics, which will give the gift of fruit or nuts, shade and clean air for many Christmases to come. Each FestiviTree costs just £2.50, which pays for the sapling and provides support for the community growing it. It also goes towards courses on tree planting, permaculture and agroforestry, that will be widely shared. We would be thrilled if you were to help us achieve our goal.

Reclaim Gift Aid

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

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Word Forest 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 Word Forest 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 Word Forest 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.
