Boost your donation by an extra 25p for every £1 you donate

Gift Aid It!If you are a UK Taxpayer, providing consent for us to claim Gift Aid on your donation allows us to claim 25% of the value of your donation from the tax that you pay on your income. Gift Aid is then used on our admin costs meaning 100% of your donation goes towards the cause.
By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree that I am a UK Taxpayer and would like Kashmir Orphan Relief Trust to reclaim tax on all donations I have made within the last four years and all donations that I make hereafter. 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, it is my responsibility to pay any difference. I will notify KORT if I want to cancel this declaration, change my name, home address, or no longer pay sufficient tax on my income and/or capital gains.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like KORT 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 KORT 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 KORT 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.

What is Zakat

Zakat is the third pillar of Islam. It requires every sane, adult Muslim whose wealth exceeds the current nisab value must pay Zakat, which is 2.5% of the individual’s total wealth.

Nisab is the minimum value of total wealth one must possess in order to pay Zakat. It is defined as the value of 87.5g of pure gold or 613g of silver. Most scholars favour the lower value as it means that more people can pay Zakat and therefore there are more beneficiaries.

The value of 613g of silver as of 18 February 2021=£392 (GBP)

Zakat is both a spiritual duty and a vital part of the Islamic social welfare system. Zakat is more than just a payment or a random act of charity. It’s a unique form of religious social welfare which benefits the whole community.

Every person who is sane, an adult (reached puberty), Muslim and sahib-un-nisab mustpay Zakat as a duty. To be a sahib-un-nisab means you possess more wealth than the levelof nisab for a period of one lunar year or more.

  • Gold and silver, including ornaments or jewellery containing gold and/or silver
  • Cash held at home or in bank accounts
  • Stocks and shares owned either directly or through investment funds-Money lent to others
  • Business stock intrade and merchandise
  • Agricultural produce
  • Livestock animals such as cows, buffalo, goats, sheep and camels
  • Produce of mines
  • Pensions-Property owned for investment purposes

You can pay Zakat at any time of year, but many people choose to do so during the holymonth of Ramadan when the reward for our good deeds is multiplied. This is amplifiedfurther during Laylatul Qadr, the Night of Power, when good deeds are amplified in value bya thousand times. Also, manypeople give Zakat during Ramadan each year because it’s easyto track the progress and end of the lunar year, ensuring that no Zakat payments aremissed.

There are eight categories as outlined in the Qur’an: The poor, those indebt, thewayfarer, those in the cause of Allah (SWT), the needy, those whose hearts are to bereconciled, to free those in captivity and those who collect and distribute Zakat payments.

Please refer to your local imams for further questions relating to Zakat.
