Radio 4 Appeal Fund
Sometimes listeners wish to support all our Radio 4 Appeal charities. If you wish to, you can do so by making a one-off or regular gift to the Radio 4 Appeal Fund which is then shared between them. The Radio 4 Appeal Fund is run by the Charities Trust, registered charity number 327489, which receives and then sends on donations to the charities that have been chosen to be part of the Radio 4 Appeal.
Charities Trust can claim Gift Aid on eligible donations. If you are a UK taxpayer, Gift Aid increases the value of your eligible donations by allowing charities to reclaim the basic rate of tax on your gift at no extra cost to you. That’s an additional 25p for every £1 you give. There is a small administration cost applied by Charities Trust for managing the Radio 4 Appeal Fund, which is taken from the overall Gift Aid it receives wherever possible.

If you are a UK taxpayer, Gift Aid increases the value of your charity donations by allowing charities to reclaim the basic rate of tax on your gift at no extra cost to you. That’s an additional 25p for every £1 you give. If you are a higher or additional rate taxpayer, you can claim the difference between the rate you pay and the basic tax rate on your donation. This can be done either through your Self Assessment tax return or by asking HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) to amend your tax code. In order to claim Gift Aid, download this form.
