Gift Aid

The Mount Stuart Trust participates in the Gift Aid scheme. If you are a UK taxpayer, you can help Mount Stuart by making a Gift Aid declaration. By making a donation of 10% above the admission rate we are able to claim Gift Aid on the whole amount. What this means is that we can claim an additional 25p for every £1.00 that is donated.
