  • The MBA also runs the MBA Fellows Programme. For further information, click here.

  • I am a UK taxpayer, and I would like the Marine Biological Association to reclaim the tax on any eligible donations I have made as well as any future donations.

    I understand that I must have paid an amount of income tax or capital gains tax at least equal to the amount that the Marine Biological Association will reclaim in the tax year in which the gift was given.

    What is gift aid?

    The Marine Biological Association is a charity. Gift Aid is a government scheme where charities can reclaim money on your contribution from HMRC. If you are a UK tax payer we can reclaim 25p for every £1 you give us.

    Without spending a single penny, your basic Membership subscription could provide a Gift Aid contribution of £10.00. Making your membership fee under Gift Aid is just another way of demonstrating your support.
