Tax Efficient Giving

Help more people living with dementia and their families, without donating an extra cent!

Have you donated to The Alzheimer Society of Ireland in the last 4 years?  With just a quick signature, your generous gifts could be worth even more!

Tax back criteria

When a donor gives €250 or more in one year, their gift is worth at least an additional €112.33. If everyone was to send back their forms, we could unlock thousands of much-needed income to help people living with dementia, their families and carers. But we cannot do anything unless donors sign and return their tax back forms.

In order for The Alzheimer Society of Ireland to claim tax back on your donations, donors must meet certain criteria. You must have:

  • Donated €250 or more to The Alzheimer Society of Ireland in one year (January–December) in the last four years (2017–2020)
  • Have paid tax (PAYE or self-assessed) for the relevant year(s)
  • Donated yourself directly, rather than sponsored a friend or taken part in a raffle or collection

Tax back scheme

Following the 2013 budget, changes were made to the tax relief scheme on charitable donations:

  • All taxpayers (PAYE & Self-assessed) are now eligible
  • One form (CHY3) will now cover you for five years
  • One standard tax rate applies for everyone
