If you believe in low taxes, free markets, a small state and the freedom to make decisions about how you run your life, we hope you will consider donating to the IEA. 

The IEA is an educational research charity. We do not accept or seek government funding and we’re reliant on donations from individuals, companies and charitable trusts to carry out our mission.

The UK government allows charities to claim back the tax on charitable donations if you are a UK tax payer and have or will pay sufficient tax on your income. 

At the current basic tax rate of 20% we can reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that you give to the IEA.

Higher rate tax payers

If you pay higher rate tax, you can also claim the difference between the higher rate of tax (40%) and the basic rate (20%) on the total (gross) value of your donation.

For more information on claiming back higher rate tax please visit the HMRC website
