Tax Relief  

Help save children’s lives in 30 seconds!

If you are a taxpayer and have kindly donated over €250 in the last four years, UNICEF can claim 45% of your gift back in tax.
This means you can help even more children!

Please download, sign and return the form below as soon as you can to
UNICEF Ireland, 33 Lower Ormond Quay, FREEPOST, Dublin 1.


It really is that easy to give another €112 (at least) to children who need it most.

Just Sign. Save Lives. There’s no additional cost to you. It’s that Easy!

One signature. One form.
Five years of vital funds.

Signing and returning your tax form means that UNICEF can claim tax back on your donation. You only need to complete this form once every five years.

We are so grateful for your support, now your signature can save lives.


For every €250 you donate, UNICEF will receive an additional €112 from Revenue.

That’s enough to provide emergency therapeutic food to help bring 3 more children back from the brink of starvation.

It won’t cost you a cent. Just a few minutes of your time.

Thanks to donors like you, Aysha received the treatments she needed to recover

The difference YOU can make with just your signature!

Aysha is a one-year-old girl from Somalia. When Aysha was first admitted to the UNICEF-supported health centre in Mogadishu, she needed urgent help.

Aysha was severely acutely malnourished, which meant she needed urgent treatment to survive. UNICEF provided her with emergency Ready-To-Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF) that saved her life.

This miracle peanut paste is often all that stands between life and death for many children like Aysha.

It is thanks to generous supporters like you, that UNICEF is able to continue to provide life-saving treatment to children around the world. And today it is your signature that will help us be there for even more children.

We’re not asking for money! We’re asking for 30 seconds of your time.

By signing and returning your tax form, you will
send urgently needed funds to help save children like Aysha.


3 Reasons you should return your tax form:

Tax Back Scheme FAQ

1. How much do I have to give to qualify for tax back?

Donations that amount to €250 in any one year or more qualify for tax back.

2. How much more money will you get for my €250 donation?

If you gave €250 or more in a single year and are a taxpayer, UNICEF can claim 45% of the value of your donation; this means a donation of €250 will be worth an extra €112.33. If you donate €1,000 UNICEF can claim €449.30, making your donation to children worth €1,449.30!

3. Where do I find my PPS Number?

You will find this on your payslip or any communication from the Revenue

4. I do not pay tax, but my husband/wife does?

You may be jointly assessed as a married couple, and if that’s the case, you can still fill out the form.
You just need to fill out the details of the person who pays tax.

5. Can I still fill out the form if I do not pay any tax?

If you were either a self-assessed or a PAYE taxpayer in the year that your donation of over €250 was paid, then you can go ahead and fill out the form. Otherwise unfortunately we will not be able to claim tax back.

6. How can I stop receiving tax forms?

If you are not a taxpayer or you prefer not to receive the tax form in future, please call our Donor Care Team on 01 878 3000 or email


7. What if I give to more than one charity?

The donation amount on the form is what you have given to UNICEF. It doesn’t matter if you have given to other charities as well.

8. Can I cancel an Enduring Certificate?

Yes. If you decide later that you do not want UNICEF to receive tax back, you can cancel an enduring certificate at any stage by contacting UNICEF Ireland.

9. Does it matter if I am self-employed or self-assessed?

Since 1 Jan 2013, self-assessed and PAYE taxpayers are treated the same – all tax back goes to the charity, not the taxpayer. So, while you don’t get the tax back yourself, your donations to UNICEF Ireland can be worth 45% more at no extra cost to you.

10. Do donations collected from a charitable event organised by me qualify for this scheme?

Unfortunately, we can only claim tax back on donations which came personally from you.

11. If I complete and return the form, does that mean I am committed to giving money?

Absolutely not. We can only claim tax back on donations which you have already given to us, or that you may give in the next 4 years.

12. Do I need to disclose my earnings or tax details?

No. You don’t need to tell us your earnings or how much tax you pay. All we need is your signature and PPS number. What’s more, the information that you disclose on a Charity Tax Relief Form will be kept completely confidential.
