Eligible UK taxpayers looking to give money to the extreme poor can do so through GiveDirectly UK (“GDUK”). GDUK is a UK trust with registered charity number 1167938 and the official UK partner of GiveDirectly. GDUK reclaims Gift Aid which boosts donations by 25p for each £1 donated. (Higher and additional rate tax payers can also reclaim additional tax relief via their Self Assessment returns.)
Donations to GDUK (less transaction fees) are granted to GiveDirectly for cash transfer programs in Africa. Funds are directed by GDUK’s board of trustees and cannot be allocated to specific programs by donors.
