If you have donated to Ethiopiaid Ireland in the last four years, then just a moment of your time can make a bigger difference to those living in poverty in Ethiopia.
The Government-approved tax back scheme allows charities like Ethiopiaid to claim 44.9% in tax back on donations over €250, at no cost to you, our donor. All you need to do is sign and return a CHY3 – Tax-back form so we can claim the tax back from the Revenue Commissioners.
The form is valid for 5 years (unless you choose to cancel it), which helps lower our admin costs – allowing for greater impact in the work we do to improve the lives of the most vulnerable and marginalised in Ethiopia.
With this scheme we have the potential to unlock much needed income which together we can help people in Ethiopia have access to quality education, healthcare and a life of dignity, but we really need you to sign and return your tax-back form today, thank you!
In order for us to claim tax back on your donations you must have donated €250 or more to Ethiopiaid within one year, in the last four years.
You can make your donation as a once-off donation or by instalments. For example, a monthly gift of €21 over 12 months totals €252, and qualifies for the tax back scheme. This only applies to personal gifts, and not to funds raised through sponsorship.
It doesn’t matter if you’re PAYE or self-assessed. Since 2013, self-assessed tax payers can no longer claim tax back on charitable donations – only the charity can make this claim from Revenue.
We can claim up to 44.9% in tax back on donations over €250, at no cost to you. That’s an additional €112.25 on top of your €250 donation.
It all adds up, an extra €100 can help provide shelter for a woman or girl from Gender-Based Violence for 6 months. Please sign the form, it really is that simple, thank you!
Download your CHY3 – Tax-back form or call us on (0) 1 677 5188 or 087 093 6031 and we’ll send you one in the post.
All you need do is fill in and sign the form, confirming that you are an Irish tax payer and that you have paid enough income or capital gains tax to cover the amount we will reclaim.
Please send your completed forms to: Frances Darcy, Ethiopiaid Ireland, The Boat House, Bishops Street, Dublin 8 and we’ll do the rest, thank you.
If you have any specific queries or concerns please contact Frances in our fundraising team on (0) 1 677 5188 or 087 093 6031 or firstname.lastname@example.org
