FAQs - Making a donation

How can I donate?

Thank you for wishing to make a donation to Compassion! We have a range of ways in which you can contribute to our work on our donations page

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid can be applied if you are a UK taxpayer, for every £1 you donate we can claim back 25p without any cost to you. Please let us know if we can claim Gift Aid on your donations.  Compassion in World Farming can reclaim tax on all donations you’ve made in the last 4 years, and until further notice, at no extra cost to you. In order to qualify for gift aid you must have paid or will pay UK Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax at least equal to the tax that will be reclaimed by all charities or Community Amateur Sports Clubs on your gifts for each tax year. Please note that other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify. Compassion can claim 25p for every £1 donated if these conditions are met.

How do you spend supporter’s donations?

Please see our online annual review which outlines how we use our supporters’ generous donations. For every £1 we receive we spend 73p directly on our work.


By signing up to Gift Aid, every pound you give Compassion in World Farming we can claim an extra 25 pence from Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs, helping your donation go further.
