Your donation and tax back

Your donation and tax back

Save more children's lives today, without donating an extra cent! Have you donated to Concern in the last four years? With just a quick signature, more funds could be heading to the world's poorest communities.

Tax back criteria

When a donor gives €250 or more in one year, their gift is worth at least an additional €112.33. If everyone was to send back their forms, we could unlock millions of much-needed income to help save lives in the communities where we work. But we cannot do anything unless donors sign and return their tax back forms.

In order for Concern to claim tax back on your donations, donors must meet certain criteria. You must have:

  • Donated €250 or more to Concern in one year (January–December) in the last four years (2015–2018)
  • Been PAYE in any of the four years, or self-assessed for donations made from 2013 onwards
  • Donated yourself directly, rather than sponsored a friend or taken part in a raffle or collection.

Tax back scheme

Following the 2013 budget, changes were made to the tax relief scheme on charitable donations:

  • All taxpayers (PAYE & Self-assessed) are now eligible
  • One form will now cover you for five years (after which you can renew your tax form either by SMS, email or phone – so less paperwork and less hassle!)
  • One standard tax rate applies for everyone

How your tax helps

By simply signing and returning your tax relief form, the extra funds you will help us claim could provide more life-saving essentials for vulnerable families all over the world.

Khayro gave birth during one of the worst droughts in living memory. With crops failing and livestock perishing, Khayro and her husband Ishmael struggled to find food. So while their daughter Halimo was born safely, she soon became dangerously malnourished. 

At just 14 months old, Halimo endured agonising hunger – growing weaker and weaker by the day. But, thanks to Concern supporters like you, Halimo was given the life-saving therapeutic food she needed – and is now on the road to recovery. 

We don’t know how long she would have lasted without this intervention. We are happy because she is being cared for.

To help more vulnerable children and families like Khayro’s, we urgently need you to complete your tax form today.
