If you are joining as a My RA Digital Member and would like to Gift Aid your Membership, please tick the box on the join form.

Gift-aiding your membership means that for every £1 you give we can claim an additional 25p from HM Revenue & Customs at no extra cost to you.

Please remember it is your responsibility to let us know if you are no longer eligible to gift aid.
