How your donations are used

Find out more about how Ruhama use your donation right here.

Ruhama can claim a 45% tax refund on donations over €250. Give again – at no cost to you.

Since 2013, donations of €250 or more are eligible for a tax refund of 45% for both PAYE taxpayers and the Self-Assessed. That means that your donation of €250 is worth €362 to Ruhama and will go even further in our frontline work with women affected by prostitution.

How it works:

You must have donated €250 or more to Ruhama within one year and in the last 4 years. This can be through a one-off donation or regular direct debit donations. For example, a monthly DD of €21 for 12 months totals €252. This qualifies for a tax refund of €113.40. You must have paid adequate income tax/capital gains tax for that year and live in Ireland

The refund is worth 45% of the original donation. This equates to a further €112 on top of a €250 donation, €224 on top of a €500 donation, €448 on top of a €1,000 donation and so on.

All we need is your PPS number and your signature. We commit to retaining this information securely and only for the purpose of claiming tax refunds on your donations..


How to do it:

Complete a CHY3 Enduring Certificate and return it to us at Ruhama, 4 Castle Street, Dublin 2 D02 EY44. This form is valid for 5 years from the date of signing. If you make another donation of €250 or more to us during this period, we won’t need to ask you to complete another form and we can claim tax relief on your donations. This does not commit you to future donations, but it helps us to cut down on administrative costs

If you prefer, you can complete a CHY4 Annual Certificate for one year at a time.
