Tax Efficient Giving

How it works

If you donate €250 or more in a calendar year, MQI can claim a tax rebate on your kind donation from the Revenue. Your generosity to Ireland’s homeless and hungry can grow by up to an additional €112 or 45% – at no extra cost to you. All you need to do is sign and return a form, which only takes a couple of minutes to complete.

Your donations are eligible if:

  • your donation is worth €250 or more to MQI in a calendar year while resident in Ireland.
  • you paid income tax during the year in question.
  • or you are retired and have a pension, investment, or assets that you paid income tax or capital gains on
  • or you are self-employed/self-assessed,
  • or you are jointly assessed for tax with your tax-paying spouse.

What we need you to do

To allow MQI to reclaim a tax rebate from Revenue on your donation, all you have to do is complete the CHY3 form here.

The CHY3 form is valid for five years. This means that MQI will securely store your form for five years and, for each year that you donate €250 or more to MQI, we can claim tax back on your donation from Revenue. Only you can set these tax funds free – without your signature the unclaimed money will never get the chance to help.

If you would prefer to complete an online form each year, you can download and print the CHY4 form here.

If you would like help or would like a form posted to you, please contact our donor care team on 01 524 0139. We would be delighted to help.

Your Privacy

When you return the signed form to MQI, we will forward it to the Revenue Commissioners. We store your tax form information securely and only for the purpose of obtaining tax rebates. Revenue pays the tax relief to MQI when satisfied that you have paid at least the donation amount in income tax. MQI does not receive any information on individual taxpayers.

Thank you so much for your support.
