Donating to ClientEarth - your frequently asked questions.

Is my donation tax deductible?

Your donation qualifies for Gift Aid if you pay tax in the UK, and have signed the Gift Aid declaration. Every £1 that you donate with Gift Aid is worth £1.25 to ClientEarth at no extra cost to you. We can also offer tax receipts on request. You can read more on the Gov.uk website.

Will I get a receipt?

Yes, we can post a receipt on request, just email our Supporter Care Team supportus@clientearth.org. Alternatively, if you donate online, your gift details will be sent via email as soon as you complete your transaction.

Can I donate by post or over the phone?

Yes, please post your cheque, postal order or CAF cheque to:

ClientEarth Development Team
The Joinery,
34 Drayton Park, 
N5 1PB

If you would like to make a secure donation over the phone and you live in the United Kingdom, please call our Supporter Care Team on +44 (0)303 050 5924 Monday to Friday between 9am to 5.30pm.

How do I contact ClientEarth?

What is a match funded-campaign?

A match-funded campaign is an opportunity for you to increase your impact on specific appeals. During a match campaign, every donation you give is doubled, so a £1/$1 donation becomes £2/$2, and a £100/$100 donation becomes £200/$200. All donations will be matched until the match-giving fund we have allocated for a campaign is exhausted. Any donations received after the allocated match campaign will not be matched.

The maximum donation amount from any individual for this campaign is £10,000 or $10,000.

If we exceed our specified match appeal target, we reserve the right to continue matching donations. We will update our donation page as soon as possible after we stop matching donations. All donations received after this point will still be gratefully received and contribute towards our crucial work.

Where does the match money come from?

It depends on the campaign, but most ClientEarth match campaigns are made possible with the help of our generous major donors. Our Philanthropy team works with a number of highly committed individuals who are passionate about making a difference for the planet.

Why doesn’t the match fund get donated directly?

We’re grateful for the support of our funders, but the work of the ClientEarth also relies on the support of individuals like you. By setting up a match fund rather than making a direct donation, our partners know that not only will their investment go twice as far, they’re also giving you the chance to double your impact.

Sometimes, a partner will have given large amounts directly in the past, and would like to try a different approach. Match campaigns allow us to increase the reach of our appeals to raise even more money, which helps fund our work in over 50 countries to tackle climate change and protect biodiversity.

If you have any further questions about match funding, please don’t hesitate to get in touch on supportus@clientearth.org, or give us a call on +44 (0)207 749 5970.
