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.

AdvantageNFP Fundraiser is the integrated CRM, fundraising and membership database solution from Redbourn Business Systems, specially designed for not-for-profit organisations.  

“We wanted to keep better records of all of our three thousand members and supporters many of whom have taken on rescued pets from us. The ideas on how to do this from the Redbourn team were outstanding” explains Tony Thorn, Fundraising Manager at WADARS.

“I was looking for a system to help us manage our events, Gift Aid administration, legacy fundraising and our communications with our supporters. Redbourn Business Systems showed us that with its database and expertise of their team, it will help to achieve all of our goals” Tony concludes.

Redbourn’s Managing Director, Steve Cast, adds “Animal welfare is one of the causes Redbourn strongly support and seeing another charity in this area joining the long list of customers using AdvantageNFP Fundraiser delights us!”
