Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Save The Mother Trust to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Save The Mothers Trust we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Save The Mothers Trust to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Save The Mothers Trust will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Save The Mothers Trust receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

Donation Total: £3.00

There are around 39 million blind people in the world, but it is thought 80 percent of blindness can be cured or, even better, prevented.
That’s 31.2 million people who could potentially be gifted with sight or at least have they sight preserved. Shocked by this? So are we. Here, at Save the Mother’s Trust, we want to help eliminate blindness (where it can be avoided) and also support people who are irreversibly blind to live as independently as possible.
A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye, which leads to a decrease in vision. Cataracts often develop slowly and can affect one or both eyes. Symptoms may include faded colours, blurry vision, halos around light, trouble with bright lights and trouble seeing at night. This may result in trouble driving, reading or recognising faces. Poor vision, caused by cataracts, may also result in an increased risk of falling and depression. Half of all blindness and a third of visual impairment worldwide is caused by cataracts.

There are 945,000 blind people in Punjab; 310,000 in Sindh; 85,000 in Baluchistan and 183,000 in the North West Province. Most of this blindness is preventable and/or treatable. Approximately 70% of people affected by blindness in Pakistan live in remote areas of the country and are unable to travel to cities where the majority of services are located.

Save the Mothers Trust sets up regular camps both at our hospital in the North West Province of Pakistan and also in the more remote areas. This is to provide FREE eye tests and cataract surgery to the poor and needy.

Please give a gift of sight today by donating only £50.
