Tax Efficient Giving to Dogs Trust

When you donate to Dogs Trust, you are doing a wonderful thing and helping us to save the lives of many dogs from across Ireland. But did you know if you donate €250 or more in the course of a tax year, you can help us save many more and it won’t cost you anything extra?

How does it work?

Dogs Trust is authorised by the Revenue Commissioners to claim tax relief on donations in excess of €250. What this means is that if you pay tax and have donated €250 or more to Dogs Trust in the past 4 years, then we can claim 45% extra in tax relief from Revenue at no extra cost to you. All we need is your signature.

Do I qualify?

In order for us to claim tax back on your donations you must have donated €250 or more to Dogs Trust within a one year period, within the last four years.

This €250 or more donation can be a one off donation, several one off donations equating to €250+ or through instalments throughout the year such as a monthly gift of €21 or more over 12 months. In order for your donation to be eligible for tax back you must pay adequate income tax and/or capital gains tax for the year.

How your signature helps!

Dogs Trust can claim 45% in tax back on donations over €250, at absolutely no extra cost to you! That means a donation of €250 has the potential to be worth an additional €112.25. It is so simple! An extra €112 could microchip 7 dogs in our Rehoming Centre!
