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.

Planning strategically your organisation's integrated campaigns can lead to outstanding fundraising results. This week's case study illustrates the World Development Movement's Real George Osborne campaign, which generated a significant amount of new regular donors for the charity.


The World Development Movement (WDM) is a UK-based anti-poverty campaigning organisation with a worldwide reputation for tackling hard-hitting, controversial issues. WDM has been an AdvantageNFP Fundraiser customer since 2007. They are using the Enterprise version of AdvantageNFP Fundraiser for ten concurrent users.

The campaign site received 25% of its traffic from Facebook and Google, there were 36,102 views on YouTube and 2,471 people signed up to the campaign. In terms of fundraising, the campaign generated 250 new regular donors for WDM in AdvantageNFP Fundraiser.
