Your details

Gift Aid

Donating through Gift Aid means that your donation can be worth 25% more at no extra cost to you. By choosing to donate through Gift Aid, you confirm that you are a UK taxpayer and understand that if you pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on your donations to all Charities or Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASCs) in that tax year it is your responsibility to pay any difference. You will also notify the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow if you wish to cancel this declaration; if you change your name or address; or if you no longer pay sufficient Tax on your income/capital gains to qualify for Gift Aid.

Fundraising is the life blood of many Scottish charities and we need to raise funds from voluntary sources.
