GIFT AID

DfM UK is eligible to receive gift aid. Gift Aid is a UK tax relief specifically designed to benefit charities and encourage charitable giving. If you’re a UK taxpayer, Gift Aid means that for every pound you donate to a UK registered charity, the charity can reclaim 25p from the government – the basic rate income tax that you have already paid on it. This increases the value of your gift by 25% at no extra cost to you!

The easiest way to gift aid a donation is to use our online giving form.

Of the three branches of the charity the German chapter, Ärzte für Madagaskar e.V., is the largest and currently employs one project coordinator, but still relies heavily on the work of many volunteers. In addition we employ two project managers in our office in Antananarivo, Madagascar.
