Tax Effective Donations

Did you know that your donations can go even further thanks to the Charitable Donation Scheme offered by Irish Revenue? 

This is an amazing opportunity for your generous donations to have an even greater impact in those communities and families you are supporting. 


How Does The Scheme Work? 

If you are PAYE or self-assessed taxpayer, and you've donated €250 in any single year out of the past four years, Self Help Africa can claim tax back on your donations. In fact, your donation could be worth an extra €112.25! 

And all you have to do is complete this form and return it to Self Help Africa. We then make the claim to Revenue 

Once you download the form, please print it, complete the required information, sign the form and return to us by post: 

Self Help Africa
4th Floor, Joyce’s Court
38 Talbot Street
Dublin 1
D01 C861

Once signed, the new CHY3 form lasts for 5 years. This means that you only need to fill out the form once every 5 years, which reduces our administration costs and saves you time. 

For more information on how Charity Tax Relief works, please call Maria on 01 677 8880 or visit


Please note: 

The CHY3 form provided by Revenue covers donations you make over 5 years including the current year. 

You can download a CHY4 form if you wish to complete this process on an annual basis 

Donations must be personal - i.e.  donations you've made yourself. Donations from collections, sponsorships, or raffles for example are not eligible.
