How does Givergy manage Gift Aid

In the UK, Gift Aid is important to many charities as the government will support in donating an extra 25% of any donation made, if the guest agrees to allow the charity to claim it.

If enabled, when a guest registers on the fundraising website or tablet, it will ask them if they would like to add Gift Aid to their donation. If they tick this box, they will the be required to complete the first line of their address and postcode.

The following copy is displayed to guests – should you wish to update this please chat with our support team.

If you are a UK tax payer and want to claim Gift Aid on any donation or eligible bid you make, tick here and complete your details below. For more info click here.

Gift Aid Declaration
Boost your donation by 25p of Gift Aid for every £1 you donate.
Gift Aid is reclaimed by the charity from the tax you pay for the current tax year. Your address is needed to identify you as a current UK taxpayer.
In order to Gift Aid your donation you must tick the box on the Register page. By doing so, you agree that you are a UK taxpayer and understand that if you pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax in the current tax year than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all your donations it is your responsibility to pay any difference.
Please notify the charity if you:- want to cancel your declaration- change your name or home address- no longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains
If you pay Income Tax at the higher or additional rate and want to receive the additional tax relief due to you, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self-Assessment tax return or ask HM Revenue and Customs to adjust your tax code.

Post-event, you will be able to download all of this information into a report for you to work with HMRC to claim the Gift Aid.

Always consider

  • It is your responsibility to make the claim for Gift Aid with HMRC. Givergy is not responsible or liable for this.
