Tax Effective Giving

 UK taxpayers

Gift Aid allows us to claim a further 25% on your donation from the Inland Revenue at no extra cost to you.

The giver must be a UK taxpayer and must have paid an amount of tax that at least equals the tax being reclaimed on the donation. UK tax paid on income, capital gains and savings all qualify.

To take advantage of Gift Aid, please fill in the Gift Aid Declaration on the donation form.

US taxpayers

The Wallace Collection has an account with CAF America to enable US tax payers to make tax effective donations.

To make a gift to the Wallace Collection via CAF America, please complete the Gift Form and simply put 'The Wallace Collection' in the 'Suggest a foreign nonprofit' text box. For stock and cheque donations, please ensure you send a gift form along with your donation as CAFAmerica will not be able to process the donation without one.

You can also make online donations to the Wallace Collection via CAFAmerica simply put 'The Wallace Collection' in the 'Suggest a foreign nonprofit' text box.
