Select Payment Method
I understand that I must have paid income or capital gains tax (in the UK) equal to the tax that will be claimed by all the charities that I donate to (currently 25p for every £1 you give) in the same tax year. The tax reclaimed will be used to help fund the administration costs of the charity. I understand I must notify READ Foundation if I am no longer eligible, wish to cancel this declaration, change my name or home address or if I no longer pay sufficient income or capital gains tax. 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 it is my responsibility to pay any difference.

We are a non-profit organisation working to create school places for children affected by poverty. We have been implementing educational and welfare projects in the developing world since 1994.

We started this journey with just £200, one teacher, 25 children, a desire to change the face of poverty forever built upon a belief that 'education works'. Today, we have enough places for 103,790 children to gain an education across 382 schools - 9,960 of which are orphaned.
