BAHAMAS HURRICANE RESPONSE UPDATE

45 confirmed dead but hundreds, if not thousands still missing.

Our Disaster Response teams are on the worst effected islands of Abaco and Grand Bahamas where 70,000 people are in desperate need of food and shelter.

Our objective is to ensure the safe delivery and distribution life-saving aid to those who are most in need.

But we need your help.

We urgently need to raise funds to ensure Team Rubicon UK can send further teams of responders to the region to continue to help those whose lives have been destroyed by Hurricane Dorian.

"Our recce team has arrived in the Bahamas. We're working with local partners
to assess the most critical needs
and understand where our
disaster response teams can
assist in the aid effort."

Reclaim Gift Aid

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

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Team Rubicon UK 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 Team Rubicon UK 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 Team Rubicon UK 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.

But we can make sure we're ready for them.

Every Greyshirt” volunteer, whether a veteran or civilian, brings grit, determination and hard-won experience to our humanitarian mission. We’re one team with a bias for action, creating order in the wake of destruction.

Because we can make a difference, we believe we must.

Supporting Team Rubicon guarantees that those facing their darkest hour receive the help they need to begin rebuilding their lives.
