Gift Aid FAQs
If you didn't know already, Gift Aid is a great way to donate and support the charity, by allowing the Gatwick Aviation Museum to claim the tax back on the whole amount paid towards the price of your ticket as part of the Government’s Gift Aid Scheme.
We are of course enormously grateful to receive every donation regardless of its value, and every person who supports us is contributing to the preservation of the museum, our exhibits and the many projects we do that safeguard British aviation heritage.
