      Regular giving and Tax Effective Giving

      Making an affordable, regular contribution by Standing Order helps with future planning and the cumulative value can make a big difference. The table below shows how regular gifts can mount up.

      Having charitable status allows gifts to Sherborne Girls to be tax-efficient. The benefits of Gift Aid are considerable. If you pay UK tax on any kind of income, including capital gains, then the school is entitled to reclaim the basic rate of tax that you have already paid on your gift at no cost to you - this works out at 25p for every £1 donated. Higher rate tax payers can also reclaim the difference between standard and higher rate tax on their donation for themselves through their Tax Return, which means it costs you less to give.
