Tax efficient giving


*Don’t worry, it’s good news

MSF teams provided emergency medical care to over 10 million patients in 72 countries during the extraordinary year of 2021. The COVID-19 pandemic continued to affect vulnerable communities and people in humanitarian crisis zones where MSF have been working tirelessly. Despite this, MSF staff continued to provide expert medical care in some of the most challenging of circumstances, from Afghanistan to Gaza, from South Sudan to Yemen, all thanks to your generosity.

This was all possible thanks to the generosity of supporters like you.

As if that wasn’t enough good news, we can make your donation go further.

If you have donated* to MSF in the last four years, we can make your donations go up to 45% further by claiming tax relief on them.

Charities can claim back on charitable donations made by all taxpayers (PAYE and self-assessed).

We can claim tax relief on annual donations of €250 or more. The tax relief we claim on your donations will go towards our unrestricted Emergency Fund which ensures we can respond quickly to emergencies around the world.

What to do 

If you donated €250 or more annually to MSF, we will be able to claim up to 45% tax back from Revenue. So a €250 donation would now be worth €362!

All you have to do for us to claim this tax relief is fill out a form and return it to us. We will automatically send you the correct form at the beginning of the year.
