UK tax payer

For every £1 you give to the BFI, we will receive an extra 25p from HMRC at no extra cost to you through the Gift Aid scheme. To join the scheme and enable the BFI to make these claims, we need a completed Gift Aid declaration form to accompany your donation, if you have not already provided the BFI one in the past four years. The form can be found here:

US tax payer

You can support the BFI by giving to the American Friends of the BFI, a 501 (c) (3) charity. Your gift will be tax deductible for US income tax purposes, reducing the cost of the donation by up to 35%.
