Tax Efficient Giving
Did you know, if you donate €250 or more in one calendar year, your generosity to Ireland’s homeless and hungry can grow by an additional 45% – without donating an extra cent! Learn more about how a simple signature can make a difference here. All you have to do is complete the online CHY3 form below:
How your gift makes a difference
If you donate €250 in the calendar year we could reclaim up to an extra €112, from Revenue, on your behalf. With that extra €112 your entire gift could mean providing 56 hot meals to people who need it the most. Because of your signature 56 people can be welcomed into the MQI service and receive a hot meal, a seat at the table and a listening ear. All you have to do is complete the online CHY3 form below.
This CHY3 form allows you to sign for five years. This means that we can legally store your details for a five year period and claim on your behalf for each year that you donate €250 or more to MQI.
How do I know if I’m eligible for tax efficient giving
Your donations are eligible for additional tax support through your completed form if :
- you gave money or shares worth €250 or more in a given year to this charity (MQI) 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 pay income or capital gains tax on,
- or you are self-employed/ self assessed,
- or you are jointly assessed for tax with your tax paying spouse.

Tax form submission
If you would prefer to complete an online CHY4 form annually instead, please click here.
Or, if you would prefer to print out and post or email a CHY 3 form, please click here and send the completed scanned forms to firstname.lastname@example.org or post to Merchants Quay Ireland, P.O. Box 11958, Dublin 8.
When you return the signed form to MQI, we forward the donation amount for the tax year(s) along with your PPS number to the Revenue commissioners. We store your tax form information securely 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.
