Donations such as yours are truly the life-blood of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance charity and they can make a real difference to the lives of people across Yorkshire. As an independent charity, we are entirely public-funded and it costs £19,000 a day to keep both of our helicopters maintained and in the air. We are truly grateful for every donation we receive, no matter how big or how small, or if it’s a one-off or a re-occurring donation.
Regular donations can help us plan ahead and give the Charity sustainable long-term income. As technology and medical techniques advance, they enable us to make us make life-saving developments for our Charity. Regular donations are easily set up to come out once a month, or year, by following the ‘make a regular donation’ process below and setting up a Direct Debit. You can also do this by downloading the Direct Debit form here. You can return the completed form to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to:
Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Cayley House, 10 South Lane, Elland, HX5 0HQ
Your donation can be as little or as much as you choose, every penny makes a huge difference.
Increase your donation by 25%, at no extra cost to you, by adding Gift Aid
As an independent registered charity, Yorkshire Air Ambulance is entitled to HMRC’s Gift Aid scheme. This means that for every £1 donated, we can claim a further 25p from the government. So a donation of £1 would become £1.25, a donation of £5 is boosted to £6.25 and a £10 donation increases to £12.50, and so on. It’s a great way to boost your donation at no extra cost to you.
Please note that we can only claim Gift Aid on personal donations made by a UK taxpayer and not on business or corporate donations.
You will be given the option to opt into Gift Aid during the donation process and you can register using our online Gift Aid Declaration form. This will also enable to us to claim Gift Aid on any eligible donation you have made in the last four years.
