Gift Aid

Gift Aid enables registered charities to reclaim tax on donations made by a UK taxpayer.

Single Admission to the Museum now includes the voluntary donation of 10%, which enables tax to be reclaimed on the whole ticket price – that’s 25p on every £1.

Annual Membership to the Museum can also be Gift Aided (with no additional voluntary donation needed).

To Gift Aid Your Ticket

If you would like to Gift Aid your admission ticket, please say ‘Yes’ when you are asked at the Reception Desk.

By saying ‘YES’ when asked if you wish to make a Gift Aid donation when you visit, you will be making the following declaration:

‘I would like Bentley Priory Museum to treat my admission as a gift aid donation. I confirm that I have paid an amount of UK income tax or capital gains tax at least equal to the tax the charity reclaims on my donation during the tax year.’
