Orphan Care

Sponsor an Orphan with IHelp Global

Sponsor an Orphan with IHelp Global

Today one child is orphaned every 22 seconds in the world. The life of an orphan in Africa can be extremely hard, living in one of the poorest regions in the world, with 40% of its Sub-Saharan population living in absolute poverty. African orphans suffer from HIV/AIDS, high poverty rates, water and sanitation shortages.

 

Orphan sponsorship with IHelp Global provides for these children and gives them access to some of the basic but essentials of life such as food, clothing, shelter and even education. Our orphan sponsorship campaign strives to improve the livelihood of orphan children who have lost the most important thing in their lives; their parents. They can only depend on people like you!

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows iHelpGlobal to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to iHelpGlobal we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like iHelpGlobal to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. 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 I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that iHelpGlobal will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When iHelpGlobal receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
