Can Diabetes UK claim Gift Aid on my raffle tickets?
No, the money collected through sale of entries to lottery draws and raffles does not qualify for Gift Aid as it is a payment for your raffle number.
However, if you give us a goodwill donation on top of the raffle tickets, we can claim gift aid on just the donation. If you are eligible for and complete the Gift Aid information on your entry form we can claim Gift Aid on your behalf. Please read the declaration regarding Gift Aid carefully to ensure you are eligible.
