Powerful & Intuitive Fundraising CRM Database Software

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:

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.

FSI Fundraising Conference

Posted by Redbourn Business Systems on Tuesday, September 24, 2013 Under: Fundraising

The AvantageNFP Fundraiser Team recently sponsored and exhibited at the FSI Fundraising Conference in London. 

220 small charity delegates got the chance to hear from some amazing speakers. The day was jam packed full of informative sessions, top tips and case studies. The other suppliers exhibiting were Virgin Money Giving and Action Challenge.

AdvantageNFP had a great day meeting some of our existing customers and talked with some new charities about their fundraising CRM database requirements.  Everybody was impressed with the demonstration of the AdvantageNFP Fundraiser database software.

The Foundation for Social Improvement (FSI) support and develop the long term growth and sustainability of the Small Charity Sector.   If you are a not for profit organisation with an annual turnover of less than £1.5 million then you qualify for free services from the FSI. 

The FSI services include free training, conferences, workshops, mentoring and more.  The roadshows take place across the country, so your organisation can access these free services at a location near you.  To find out more visit

The AdvantageNFP Fundraiser team were so impressed with the FSI and the services they offer, we have signed up to sponsor and exhibit at future roadshows to demonstrate our fundraising software.

Read the feedback from one of our customers who are already members of the FSI.

“Gloucestershire Deaf Association (GDA) has been using AdvantageNFP Fundraiser since 2010 and it has revolutionised how we manage supporter and client data. We can now efficiently monitor donor giving as well as our service user’s interaction with the services we provide. It enables us to gather a story about who we are supporting and who is supporting us.  The text messaging service, which we started using a couple of months ago has made a huge difference in how we are able to communicate with our deaf and hard of hearing clients; they love that they can now get information immediately, meaning they continue to be at the heart of what’s going on at the charity.

Gloucestershire Deaf Association (GDA) has been a member of The FSI since December 2012. To have the resources of The FSI has been invaluable to a charity like ours, who would never be able to access such fundraising and marketing tools otherwise, for example the ‘Great Big Small Charity Draw’ which offers great prizes to encourage our supporters to support GDA in other ways .

I attended my first FSI conference recently and can confidently say that they are a real  draw for being a member and a huge benefit; not only to getting support from experts but also for an opportunity to meet other small charities who you can build up a rapport with to support each other down the line”,  Gemma Sills, Events & Membership Fundraiser, GDA.
