- Fund training for young people as Anne Frank Ambassadors. Students learn leadership skills and become active citizens, taking the message of Anne Frank into other schools.
- Reach people in areas of high community tension and social deprivation. Young and old learn about the damage caused by prejudice and hatred, and how to play their part.

Gift Aid explained
Gift Aid is one of the simplest and most effective ways of giving to charity. It is a scheme administered by the Inland Revenue which allows us to claim 25p for every £1 that you donate. So, for example, if you donate £20 we can claim an extra £5, making your gift worth £25.
You simply need to have paid or will pay an amount of income tax and/or capital gains tax that is at least equal to the tax that the Anne Frank Trust will reclaim on your donations in a tax year.
The Gift Aid guidelines require a Gift Aid Declaration Form to be completed. Gift Aid Declaration forms should include the following:
- The name of our charity (which our form includes).
- The full name and home address of the person making the donation, including their postcode. Donations cannot be made jointly.
- A statement that the individual pays an amount of income and/or capital gains tax that is at least equivalent to the tax that the Anne Frank Trust will claim from HM Revenue & Customs (this is already on our standard form) and that the person wants his or her donations to be treated as Gift Aid donations. It gives us the data we need to be able to claim Gift Aid on a donation.
Gift Aid can be claimed on individual and sponsorship donations made to the Anne Frank Trust.
Gift Aid applies only to ‘gifts’. It does not apply to activities where an entry fee has been charged or where people have entered a competition. This also extends to activities where the donor can’t be traced (such as giving to collections).
To ensure we can claim the money back, it’s crucial that all the information asked for on the declaration is provided.
