It is believed that 60% of people with learning disabilities are abused as some point in their lives. There is also clear evidence to show that disabled children are 3 times more likely to be abused than children who are not disabled. Your donations and support can make a real difference to this.

Gift Aid

The Government allows charities to claim back tax on donations. This tax relief is called ‘Gift Aid’. Gift Aid is great because it means charities get extra money added to their donations at no extra cost to the donor. For every £1 donated, the charity currently receives £1.25 when you add Gift Aid.

Give as You Earn

Payroll Giving giving is an easy way for you to donate and provides a vital source of funding to the Ann Craft Trust, giving us a regular income and allowing us to plan for the future. Giving direct from your pay is also tax free. For example, if you pledge £10 from your gross salary each month, it will only cost you £8.00, but the charity gets £10 , thanks to the taxman not taking his share.

Example donations
Individual pledge (gross) Cost to individual @20% tax (net) Cost to individual @ 40% tax (net)
£5.00 £4.00 £3.00
£10.00 £8.00 £6.00
£15.00 £12.00 £9.00
