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 One Time

The one who strives for widows and the poor is like the Mujahid in the way of Allah (swt), or one who stands in night prayers or fasts during the day.

The Responsibility:
The Islamic ruling is that after the husband, the responsibility of a woman’s assistance and maintenance falls on the son, father, and brother respectively. Failing that for whatever reason, the responsibility falls on the community around her and failing that the responsibility falls on the Muslim Ummah.
It is hard work for a widow or single mother anywhere in the world to financially support herself as well as raise her family. In Third World countries, where government handouts are rare, it becomes almost impossible. A divorced or bereaved woman is often left to her own devices in an environment where a woman is seen as inferior. Life is so hard that some women will be very lucky to get even a semi-decent job.
Therefore, Save the Mothers Trust aims to alleviate their difficulties by providing financial aid with the help of your kind donations. Living costs vary from location to location; however, they are approximately £35/ Month to cover basic essentials.

By sponsoring a widow and her children, you can ameliorate their difficulties by covering their basic needs.
Join our “Sponsor a Widow Program” today. Your sponsorship will help a widow and her family, by providing them with basic necessities so they are able to lead their daily lives without facing difficulty.

“Buying a utensil for even a Daaniq (one-sixth of a dirham) and giving it to my brother as a gift for the pleasure of Allah is more beloved to me than spending a Dinaar in the path of Allah.” Abu Nu’aym in Hilya 1:328

Sponsor a Widow today from only £35 per month in:
Pakistan, Kashmir, East Africa, West Africa, Syria, Palestine or Burma.
