The Need

On August 12, 2016, a significant long-term weather event developed in Gulf States and particularly inSouthern Louisiana. During the continuing days many communities received significant rainfall of over 20 inches, and local emergencies developed into flash flooding events and significant river flooding events impacting one thousand year floodplain areas. The Governorof Louisiana declared a State of Emergency as over 20 parishes were affected and weather forecast indicated that the rains wouldcontinue for several days resulting in an incredibly dangerous initial rescue phase which lasted over four days and resulted in over 20,000 active helicopter and ground based water rescues. Roughly 10,000 structures throughout southeastern Louisiana stand affected and the event has been attributed to over a dozen confirmed fatalities.

The Response

Team Rubicon’s task force was to provide damage assessment, muck outs, debris removal, and volunteer management to affected communities.

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.
