How do I donate?

Can I claim Gift Aid on my donations?
Yes. If you are a UK taxpayer, we can claim Gift Aid on donations made online or offline, no matter how large or small. You can find out more about the Gift Aid scheme, and let us know that you’re eligible for Gift Aid, by completing this Gift Aid Declaration form (PDF 34Kb) and sending it to us (details can be found on the form).
Is there a service charge for donating online?
Yes, WorldPay will deduct a service charge of between 1% and 3% depending on your card provider.
What will you do with my details?
Will I receive an acknowledgement of my gift?
When you donate online you will receive an email confirmation of your gift almost immediately. If you send us a gift through the post or by paying directly into our bank we will also send confirmation by post, unless you advise us that you don’t need one.
Can I leave you a gift in my will?
Yes. Any gift no matter how large or small makes a difference. Find out more on our Engage with us page.
How will you use my donations?
We have five funds to which you can donate, so you can choose how you would like your donation to be used.
Please note, that your online donation will be subject to a Worldpay service charge of between 1% and 3% depending on your service provider.
Can I send a cheque?
Yes, cheques should be made payable to Royal Society of Chemistry, and sent to us at:

Is making a credit card donation online secure?
Yes, our website is secure.
