Giving in celebration/lieu

Give the gift that keeps on giving – why not consider making a donation to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance to celebrate a special occasion such as a wedding, birthday, anniversary or other special celebration.

Your donation will help towards the vital running costs of charity and ensure life-saving rapid response emergency treatment is available to all those who need us.

Gift Aid

As an independent registered charity, the 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.

Please note that we can only claim Gift Aid on personal donations made by a UK tax payer and not on business or corporate donations.

You will be given the option to opt in to Gift Aid during the donation process.
