What Are Aggregated Gift Aid Donations?

You can ‘aggregate’ (add together) donations of £20 or less from assorted donors and present them as a single monetary income item. The total donation on one line cannot be higher than £1,000. (You will need to keep evidence of the individual donations and that they are gift aid applicable).

To claim Gift Aid on aggregated donations, you don’t enter the name and address details of individual donors as this will delay your repayment claim, you can just enter a straightforward description like ‘Wednesday club donors’, the date of the last donation and the total amount raised. This saves valuable time in the data input process without losing any Gift Aid income.

AdvantageNFP Fundraiser users can now combine batches of income, such as donations, that are valid for the claiming of Gift Aid into a single monetary income item, which can subsequently be included in the next Gift Aid online claim.

To read the HMRC rules around Aggregated Gift Aid claims please take a look at the following page on their website, specifically the “Aggregated Claim” section at the end of chapter 6.6: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/charities-detailed-guidance-notes/chapter-6-claims-and-returns

This indicates that only donations up to the value of a maximum threshold (currently £20.00) can be included in an aggregated donation and that you should keep an audit trail linking the aggregated donation input in AdvantageNFP Fundraiser to the paperwork proving that all donors in the aggregated donation provided Gift Aid Declarations and that each donation was no more than the maximum threshold.

The maximum total amount of a single aggregated donation that can be input into AdvantageNFP Fundraiser is set at £1000 per tax year.

This could also be particularly useful now GDPR has come into force, in that some new donors may indicate that they do not wish to be contacted yet provide a Gift Aid declaration. In this instance you could decide to combine that donation with any other such supporter donations in AdvantageNFP Fundraiser and not create such supporters as new parties within the database.

Lost for fundraising ideas?

Posted by Redbourn Business Systems on Friday, October 19, 2012, In : Fundraising 

How do you find new supporters and more donations for your charity or not for profit organisation?  Tired of holding the same old fundraising events and activities?  These are questions that most charities and not for profit organisations face at some point.  So hopefully this will help give you inspiration to come up with new ideas.

Hosting something entirely new may appeal to a new audience of supporters.  For instance, putting on an event for children like an assault course and then g...

Wikipedia Articles

Posted by Redbourn Business Systems on Friday, October 5, 2012, In : SEO & Fundraising 

Subsequent to last week’s blog, ‘Why use Social Media?’, this week we are focusing on Wikipedia Articles.  Should a Charity or Not for Profit Organisation have a Wikipedia Article?

As mentioned last week, building your ‘digital shelf’ in the Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs) and controlling as much premium space will help you gain more supporters and, in turn, funds.  So using Social Media can help you gain this space.  Another ‘digital shelf’ to add to your armour is Wik...
