The Meridian Programme is hosted by the Unit for Research into Changing Institutions (URCHIN), a UK Charitable Trust, Reg. No. 284542. For us to reclaim tax under the GiftAid scheme you must pay an amount of income tax and/or capital gains tax at least equal to the tax that URCHIN (Meridian) reclaims on your contributions in the tax year (currently 28p for each £1 you give). You can cancel this declaration at any time by notifying us. If in the future your circumstances change and you no longer pay tax equal to the tax that we reclaim, you can cancel this declaration. If you pay tax at a higher rate you can claim further tax relief in your Self Assessment tax return.
