Essential building at the ADI Wildlife Sanctuary

Your donation will be doubled

In 2018, ADI purchased 455 acres of land in South Africa to build a new sanctuary with huge, natural habitats for rescued animals. We currently have 42 rescued lions in our care – nearly all saved from circuses in Peru, Colombia and Guatemala.

Clean and effective waste disposal and maximising water conservation are a vital part of our vision for an environmentally-friendly sanctuary.

We want to build an eco-friendly wastewater filter system. Through biological filtration – using nature to give us a helping hand – we can process the sanctuary’s effluent while adding to our biodiversity. Reeds which absorb the waste nutrients will provide natural habitat for insects and birds. Another important step in making the ADI Wildlife Sanctuary self-sustainable and environmentally friendly.

Thanks to a generous offer from Big Cat Rescue (our partners saving tigers Hoover, Kimba, Simba, and Max) if we can raise half of the costs (£38,000) for this, they will match it.

Your donation today will enable us to take on this huge, essential project, on which you can claim tax relief and gift aid.

Thank you for your support.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows ADI Foundation to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to ADI Foundation we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like ADI Foundation to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that ADI Foundation will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When ADI Foundation receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
