to the affected population of Great Abaco and Grand Bahama

58 dead, hundreds, if not thousands, still missing.

Our Disaster Response teams have just returned following over a month on the worst effected islands of Abaco and Grand Bahamas, where 10,000 people were in desperate need of food and shelter. Our objective was to ensure the safe delivery and distribution life-saving aid to those most in need.

We return having successfully delivered 142 tonnes of aid to almost 4,000 of those most critically impacted, including 47 tonnes of food, 42 tonnes of clean water, and 8 tonnes of shelter, in the shape of tents and tarpaulins. In addition, we have established distribution points to provide further aid to an additional 60,000 people once they return to their homes on Abaco and Grand Bahama.

But we need your help.

Please consider donating to Team Rubicon UK to ensure we are always able to respond with the same speed and impact to future disasters

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.
