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.

How the 'SMS Text Messaging' function can improve your fundraising results

Posted by Redbourn Business Systems on Friday, June 22, 2012 Under: SMS Text Messaging & Fundraising

Activate the SMS Text Message function in AdvantageNFP Fundraiser and see how your charity can improve fundraising results.   This week's case study looks at how St. Clare's Hospice is using SMS Text Messaging to inform supporters that registration for an event is now open.

St. Clare’s Hospice is a local independent charity established in 1987, to provide palliative care to adults with life limiting illnesses South of the Tyne.  

St. Clare’s Hospice has been an AdvantageNFP Fundraiser customer since 2004. They are using the Professional version of AdvantageNFP Fundraiser for 4 users.

St. Clare’s Hospice has recently started using the SMS Text Messaging function in AdvantageNFP Fundraiser, to inform supporters that registration for an event is now open. “For the Midnight Walk we were able to profile the database to select Ladies only, over the age of 12 with a mobile phone number in the database” says Marie Watson, Fundraising Manager.

“We were able to send a text message to say this event is now open, visit the website to register, those with a smart phone can click on the link and register immediately. The great thing is that it is a fraction of the cost of a postage stamp, so it is saving the charity money” continues Marie Watson.
