Tax efficient giving


*Don’t worry, it’s good news 

Your support has helped us to reach over 10 million patients in 72 countries. In 2019 we provided emergency medical assistance and water sanitation support to people displaced by flooding after Cyclone Idai. We scaled up our response to the ongoing crisis in Yemen, working in 13 hospitals and health centres across the country and supporting more than 20 others. In Aweil, South Sudan we provided maternity, neonatal and pediatric care, assisting thousands of deliveries. 

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, or you can easily download one from the links below. 

  • The CHY3 form allows us to claim tax relief on your donations for the next five years. So, if we’re lucky enough to have your ongoing support, we can continue to make your donations go further.  
  • The CHY4 is a once-off annual tax rebate form, so it allows us to claim tax relief on your donations for one year.  

Signing either of these forms will not result in any further cost to you, it simply means that we can generate even more funds to help our patients by claiming tax relief on donations you already made. 

You can return the completed form to us for free at
