Your donation and tax back

Your donation and tax back

Unlock vital life-saving funds, 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 you give €250 or more in one year, Concern can claim an extra 45% in tax back on your generous donations. That’s a minimum of €112.33 extra, in vital funds that we could put to work to help the world’s most vulnerable people.

All you have to do is sign and return a Taxback form so we can claim this tax back and unlock these vital extra funds. If all eligible donors returned 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, you must have:

  • Donated €250 or more to Concern in one year (January–December) in the last four years (2019–2022)
  • Have paid tax (PAYE or self-assessed) for the relevant year(s)
  • 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 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 Taxback form, the extra funds you will help us claim could provide more life-saving essentials for more families like Everlyn’s all over the world.

After five failed rainy seasons in Kenya, Everlyn was running out of options to feed her four children. Every day, she struggled for survival.

“I work breaking up rocks. I don’t have any livestock. We have no resources to tap into. We are in a very bad situation.”


Everlyn’s one-year-old daughter Josephine dropped to a weight of just 6.9kg – little more than the weight of a baby half her age. This confirmed something heartbreaking: she was malnourished.

Everlyn told us, “Josephine’s health got worse, so I took her to the clinic. They gave me sachets of food to help her get better.”

To Everlyn’s relief, a course of emergency therapeutic food at one of Concern’s health centres helped Josephine reach a weight of 7.7kg. Her baby girl was on the road to recovery.

This is the incredible impact that these extra funds could have on more families like Everlyn’s.

So, please complete and return your Taxback form today.
