Giving regularly is a great way to support RCVS Knowledge. Monthly donations of any amount are hugely important to our work as they enable us to confidently plan the development of our animal health and veterinary education programmes more effectively.
To set up a regular gift by standing order, download and return our 'Regular giving form' or set up a regular donation via the "PayPal" system.
Giving monthly through standing order from your bank means your money is taken out after tax. However, if you are a UK taxpayer RCVS Knowledge can claim back Gift Aid. This means, if you choose to give £4 a month and you pay 20% tax (basic rate), RCVS Knowledge can claim back £1 - which adds up to £5 for us.
If you're a UK tax payer, you can make your donations worth much more through Gift Aid.
Gift aid is tax relief on money donated to UK charities. The government treats donations as if the donor had already deducted basic rate tax from the donations. The charity can then reclaim this tax to increase the value of a donation. So, for example, if you are a UK tax payer and donate £10 to us, we can get £12.50 from that donation.
Certainly worth signing up to Gift Aid and completing our ‘Gift Aid declaration form’!
To make your gift go further, simply tick the 'Gift Aid' box when giving online or on any of the donation forms. We can reclaim tax on any donations made over the last four years, so if you have made donations to RCVS Knowledge in the past but have not yet completed a Gift Aid declaration, please call us on 020 7202 0721 or complete and return our ‘Gift Aid declaration form’.
Have a play around with this clever Gift Aid Calculator to work out what your donation amounts to: www.itforcharities.co.uk/gaidcalc/simple.htm.

Leaving a gift to RCVS Knowledge in your Will is a fantastic way to make a difference long into the future. The great thing about RCVS Knowledge is that you know your money will be supporting so many worthwhile and vital projects. For further information read our ‘Leave a lasting legacy’ section.
