Do I have a choice in which day the payment is being taken?

Yes, you will get the option for the payment to leave your account on the 1st, 15th or the 28th of every month.

How often do I receive emails and receipts of my donation?

You will receive an email receipt from JustGiving ( when you set up Monthly Giving and then every month thereafter. A confirmation email will also be sent to you from JustGiving when you set up monthly giving confirming that you have created a recurring payment for Walk the Walk. Walk the Walk will be in touch separately, but don’t worry, we won’t spam your inbox, we only want to express our gratitude from time to time. Of course, you can opt-out of these communications at any time if you would prefer not to hear from us.

Can I set up a monthly donation anonymously?

Yes, you can, this is not a problem. However, we won’t be able to thank you for your generosity and support and won’t be able to let you know how your donation was used during the year. Of course, if you choose to donate anonymously, we respect your decision and a huge thank you from us all for all your support.

Are my monthly donations tax deductible?

Yes, if you are a higher rate taxpayer, through Gift Aid. Gift Aid allows charities to claim basic rate tax of 20% on your donation (that’s 25p for every £1 donated). But higher rate taxpayers pay 40% tax. So, if you’re a higher rate taxpayer, you can claim the difference between the basic rate of tax claimed by the charity on your donation, and the higher rate of tax you actually pay, from HMRC.
