Charities encouraged to spread #TickTheBox message ahead of Gift Aid Awareness Day

Melanie May | 6 October 2020 | News

In the run up to Gift Aid Awareness Day this Thursday 8 October Sayer Vincent is encouraging UK-based charities to spread the #TickTheBox message.
According to Charity Finance Group, the organiser of Gift Aid Awareness Day, £560 million goes unclaimed every year through people not ticking the box to Gift Aid their donation.
Helen Elliott, Partner, Sayer Vincent said:

“This year has been a particularly hard year for the charity sector due to Coronavirus, with donations drying up and one in ten charities facing bankruptcy. With Gift Awareness Day approaching, we urge charities to do what they can to spread the #TickTheBox message to maximise every donation to help support the sector.
“Gift Aid is an important source of income for many charities and all charities, large and small should ensure they understand the rules around Gift Aid and claim what they are entitled to.”

Sayer Vincent has a free downloadable introduction to Gift Aid and what it means for the sector, Gift Aid Made Simple Guide, which incorporates the new donor benefit limits and HMRC’s updated guidance on Gift Aid benefits.
