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 Part 2

Posted by Redbourn Business Systems on Wednesday, September 28, 2011 Under: Social Media & Fundraising

Social Media for marketing, communications and fundraising (Part 2).

Everybody is using Facebook and Twitter and we can’t  see a good reason why charities shouldn’t try and market themselves through social media for more effective fundraising.” Nordoff Robbins

There hasn’t been a better time than now for charities to embrace social media and engage into more effective fundraising via social media.  With Twitter recently releasing a Web Analytics Tool (Source: Mashable) and Facebook improving its “Causes” pages since redeveloping last week (Source: Causes).  Clearly there is a great deal of interest in social media and we’re all spending more and more of our time online (Source: Marketing Pilgrim).

Facebook and Twitter are great tools for communicating with our audience.” War Child
