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.

Social Media for marketing, communications and fundraising.

Social Media for marketing, communications and fundraising.

Very few people will check the website of their favourite charity on a daily basis, but more than 250 million people will check their Facebook pageHoneypot

It seems that nowadays everywhere you turn you find social media in front you. Whether this is Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Foursquare or Flickr. Social Media sites are part of everybody’s life; they are here to stay and their popularity is growing fast. Recent studies demonstrate this point. For example if it was a country Facebook would be the world’s third most populated one, behind China and India. (Source: Tech Magazine)

At AdvantageNFP we have worked with almost two hundred not-for-profit organisations worldwide, providing CRM, fundraising, membership, alumni and ticketed event management database solutions.  Our mission is to help our customers manage their world efficiently and to help them raise more funds.

As the number one charity CRM supplier in the UK we are starting to see some really exciting and interesting social media developments amongst our customer base.  This is something that we care passionately about, having introduced social media functionality into our AdvantageNFP fundraiser product as long ago as 2009.  Some of our customers, of all shapes and sizes, are making a great success of their CRM and social media links.  So we took a small sample from our growing customer base and discussed their CRM and social media strategy. Over the next few weeks we will share different case studies which can be downloaded from the Blog page of our website.

This week we have InterAct Reading Service and Honeypot, both AdvantageNFP Fundraiser customers since 2006.

To summarise, there is a growing trend amongst our AdvantageNFP customers towards building on their existing CRM solution and developing a strong social media presence, by using all the major social networking sites available.  Our customers increasingly see social media sites as an integral part of their communications, marketing and fundraising strategy.
