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.

Qurbani Project

“It is not their meat, nor their blood, that reaches God; it is their piety that reaches God”
(Al Quran 22:37)

The aim of sacrifice, like all other Islamic essentials, is piety and self-righteousness. It also promotes the spirit of sacrifice for a right cause. Qurbani is the act of sacrificing an animal (Camel, Cow, Goat, sheep). The occasion of Sacrifice takes place after Eid-Ul-Adha prayers, marking the conclusion of the Muslim Pilgrimage (Hajj). Millions of Muslims around the world honor the tradition of Prophet Ibrahim (A.S) by sacrificing an animal and then distributing the meat accordingly. “On the 10th of Zil-Hijjah, there is no better act in the view of Allah than shedding the blood (of slaughtered animals). And verily sacrifice earns the approbation of Allah even before the drop of blood (of the slaughtered animal) falls on the ground. Hence you should offer it in good spirit. For every hair of the sacrificial animal, there is a blessing”. (Hadith)

Qurbani is a compulsory act for adults of sane mind and affordable means. It is generally agreed that if a person can afford Qurbani, they should perform it.
Eid ul Adha is a time of sacrifice. Qurbani, like Zakat, is essential for one who has the financial means and savings that remain surplus to his own needs over the year. It is essential for one’s own self. For the majority of the Qurbani beneficiaries, Qurbani meat is probably the only meat they have in the entire year.

SMT Qurbani programs are as follows:
One animal is given to a few families who live in the same area. The families care for this animal for about 5/6 days. Children interact with these sacred animals; the buffalos and cows are taken to graze and the sheep/rams are played and interacted with. These are very joyous moments for the poor families.It allows them to feel as if they are doing the Qurbani themselves. Families bring these animals to a commonplace on the day of Eid, where they are slaughtered and distributed.

In this way, the whole Qurbani experience is shared and enjoyed by everyone, especially the young. One animal is given to a few families who live in the same area. SMT distributes the Qurbani meat to some very remote areas of Pakistan and Africa. As well as distribute Qurbani meat to prisoners especially in Pakistan who only live off on average of 7 rupees/month (that’s less than 5p/month and that’s a fact!)

Every year SMT Qurbani program benefits more than 10,000 households in Pakistan, Kashmir, Bangladesh, East Africa, West Africa, Syria, and Palestine.
