Alexis Diaz Limaco Memorial Appeal

Donations doubled through matched funding

Alexis passed away in April, 2023 aged just 50 years old. He gave the last 20 years of his life to fighting to protect animals and was instrumental in the ADI circus investigations and campaigns in Latin America, which won bans on animals in circuses. Alexis and the ADI Latin America team were also central to the large-scale circus rescues in Bolivia, Peru, Colombia, and Guatemala. Many of the lions and tigers he helped save now live at the ADI Wildlife Sanctuary (ADIWS). Funds raised from this memorial appeal will:

  • Complete a new tiger habitat at the ADI Wildlife Sanctuary (ADIWS), named in his memory.
  • Ongoing care for the lions and tigers at the ADIWS.
  • Ongoing funding of rescues, care of survivors of the wildlife and entertainment trade, working for laws to protect animals across Latin America.

Donations will be doubled!

Thanks to a generous match funding pledge, donations up to £12,000 will be doubled.  Give £10 today and it becomes £20 for the animals.

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.
