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.

1. Fading Facebook
As parents and grandparents set up Facebook profiles, it is no longer seen as 'cool' for young people and they move away to other social media platforms. The likes of SnapChat and WhatApp photo messaging applications, with temporary content, are seeing continued growth.

2. The Rise of Social Advertising

Wikipedia Articles

Posted by Redbourn Business Systems on Friday, October 5, 2012, In : SEO & Fundraising 

Subsequent to last week’s blog, ‘Why use Social Media?’, this week we are focusing on Wikipedia Articles.  Should a Charity or Not for Profit Organisation have a Wikipedia Article?

As mentioned last week, building your ‘digital shelf’ in the Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs) and controlling as much premium space will help you gain more supporters and, in turn, funds.  So using Social Media can help you gain this space.  Another ‘digital shelf’ to add to your armour is Wik...

Why use social media?

Posted by Redbourn Business Systems on Thursday, September 27, 2012, In : Social Media & Fundraising 

Following on from the NFP Technology 2012 seminar that Steve Cast presented this week on ‘The Fundraising Fantastic Four’, we thought we would re-iterate the benefits of using social media.

One   key reason for using social media is to control as much premium space on Page 1 of Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs) as possible. 

We found a great analogy, referred to as the ‘Digital Shelf Strategy’ by comScore, that considers the shelves in a supermarket aisle.  Just as ‘consume...
