Donating to Tusk couldn’t be easier!
Tusk aims to direct as much of its funding as possible to where it is needed most, with an average of 80% of net funding raised being allocated in grants to projects. Each project is carefully monitored to ensure your money is being used effectively.
It's easy to make a donation through any of the following options:
You can make a secure online donation by card payment here. You also have the option of setting up a regular monthly donation – if we can rely on your regular support we can plan better for the future.
You can call 01747 831005 to make your donation by phone. We accept all major credit cards and debit cards. AMEX has been a long-standing supporter of Tusk and offers favourable rates to the Charity.
If you would like to send your donation by post, please make your cheque payable to “Tusk Trust”. You can also enclose a completed Gift Aid* declaration if you are a taxpayer, so we can maximise your donation by reclaiming tax.

Support the Tusk Foundation
Donate to Tusk’s permanent endowment fund. This is an extremely valuable asset for the Charity as it can supply a steady and dependable source of income. For more information go to the Tusk Foundation page.
This is an effective way for UK donors with investments to donate. The gift will be eligible for income tax relief. In addition, Capital Gains Tax (CGT) does not apply. Tusk has very kindly been supported by the Orr Mackintosh Foundation, an independent registered charity that operates the popular ShareGift scheme. For more details please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Donate direct from your salary before any other deductions are calculated – so you do not pay tax on the amount donated. Check with your payroll department to see if your employer offers this facility. Alternatively, you can ask your employer to simply sign up with a Payroll Giving Agency ,which will also benefit them. It’s quick and easy for this facility at no cost to the employer. For further information visit the Payroll Giving web site.
Maximise your donation to TUSK through GIFT AID if you are a UK taxpayer. Tusk will be able to reclaim the tax on your donation. For every £10 that you give, Tusk will receive another £2.50 from the Government (at current tax rates).
Our Gift Aid form can be downloaded here. Please sign, date and return it to the to Tusk office in the UK.
If you pay 40%, you can claim the difference in the tax paid (40%) and the tax reclaimed by us (25%), which equates to 15% reclaimable. All you need to do is insert the details of your charitable donations on your tax return. You can now opt to donate that additional tax benefit by completing section 19a of your tax return.
