What are Gift Aid Envelopes?
Gift Aid envelopes are commonly used by UK charities collect donations from individuals who wish to make a Gift Aid declaration.
TradePrintingUK are a speciality printing company that professionally print Gift Aid envelopes for charities in the UK and Northern Ireland.
What is Gift Aid?
Gift Aid is a UK tax relief that allows British charities to claim an additional 25% on top of donations made by UK taxpayers. For every £1 donated, the charity can claim an additional 25p from HM Revenue and Customs.
When someone donates to a charity using a Gift Aid envelope, they are asked to provide their name, address, and confirmation that they are a UK taxpayer.
This information is used by the charity to claim the Gift Aid tax relief from HM Revenue and Customs. The donor does not need to do anything further, as the charity will claim the tax relief on their behalf.
Why choose Charity Gift Aid Envelopes to raise funds?
Used by Registered Charities and hundreds of churches, chapels and cathedrals throughout the UK and Ireland, printed Gift Aid fund-raising envelopes are the de facto standard way to maximise charitable giving and donations to your organisation, whilst giving you attractive, professional branding as well to potential donors.
Gift Aid envelopes can be used for one-off donations or for regular giving. They are often used by churches, mosques, synagogues, charities, and other non-profit organisations that rely on donations to fund their work or religious organisation.
The pre-printed envelopes are usually provided by the charity and can be sent out to supporters as part of a fundraising campaign, or they can be available for people to pick up in places like churches or community centres.
Printed Gift Aid, fund-raising envelopes are also used extensively by NHS Trusts, charitable Trusts, community groups, and Black Tie event fund-raising dinners. They can be personalised with a charity's logo and details.
Using Gift Aid envelopes can be a simple and effective way for charities to increase the amount of money they raise from donations.
It is important to note that to be eligible to claim Gift Aid, the Registered Charity MUST be registered with HM Revenue and Customs, plus the donor must have paid enough tax to cover the amount being claimed.
When does a Donation qualify for Gift Aid in the UK?
HMRC's current Gift Aid scheme allows any UK Registered Charity to claim an extra 25% of the value of a sum of money donated as a payment from any UK resident who pays, or who will pay (at least) basic UK income tax to HMRC, but only if the following conditions are met:
- the monetary gift cannot be used as a deductible expense for tax purposes
- the monetary gift is not to be used as part of an arrangement to acquire property from that individual (or a person connected to them) by the Registered Charity
- the gift isn't a Payroll Giving donation of any kind
- the gift isn't a repayment from UK Registered Charities and Churches
- the gift's limits are within statutory limits of donor benefits
How will a registered charity claim Gift Aid from HMRC?
The 'Gift Aid' part of the donation comes into force after (at least a) Basic Rate Income Tax' deduction has already been made by the individual. Only then can the Registered Charity reclaim the extra 25% of the value (and thus charity funds up by a quarter), provided that these strict criteria are met:
✓the Registered Charity must collect a signed Gift Aid declaration at the time of the monetary donation
✓there must be a complete, physical audit trail (with a signed Gift Aid declaration, as mentioned above) linking individual donations to individual donors
✓the charitable organisation must have clearly explained the personal income tax implications to the monetary donor at the time the donor made the donation, either on the fund-raising stationery e.g. Charity Gift Aid Envelopes, Membership Forms etc., or it can also be on a separate sheet of paper.
✓the monetary patron or charitable donor must be charged with UK Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax for the same year of the donation at least equal to the tax — treated as deducted — from their donation of money. If more than one Gift Aid donation has been made in the tax year they must be added together to work out the tax the donor must be charged with.
✓ the original donation can be by any form of monetary transaction from cash, credit or debit card, BACS bank transfer, Direct Debit, Standing Order, or olde skool personal Cheque (there'll be a Gift Aid benefit only as long as the Cheque is honoured). It can be a transaction in Pounds Sterling or converted from a foreign currency.

Whether you require small quantities of 100 up to 10,000+, TradePrintingUK can offer full colour envelope over-printing on the front and back of our very popular DL envelopes, and printed front only on the smaller C6 size.
We have two popular types of glued flaps on our Printed Gift Aid Envelopes:
120gsm Peel & Seal
Our standard, Superior envelope product using premium 120gsm white bond paper, featuring a strong, single-use, pressure-sensitive gum behind a waxy paper strip that is very easy for donors to remove to expose the glue before sealing the long-edge flap down securely.
They are great for standard DL Gift Aid donation envelopes in the UK as they securely seal in a monetary donation, whether pound notes or coins, which charities and religious groups prefer.
No need for your charity patrons resorting to licking the envelope (Yuck! Nobody needs to lick an envelope any more) to seal it. They have the wallet, long-edge flap which are very easy for people to use and easy for your church or charity's Treasurer to open again.
These are presented in "Superior" branded, high-end, red & black storage boxes (see our envelope photo gallery above), oozing quality.
