    I have a Gift Aid management question aimed mainly at organisations where their fundraising is split across departments and/or offices/regions:

    1. How do you ensure a standard ask/marketing message for gift aid for all fundraising sections? eg DM, internet, events, sponsorship forms etc. And how do you ensure gift aid IS always asked for by all sections?

    2. Who is responsible in your organisation for the accuracy and ‘elligibility’ of the tax claim itself? The database team? Finance? e.g. ensuring donations being claimed are not legacies, anonymous, are not actually organisations, otherwise not elligible for gift aid etc. (I know this shouldn’t happen but…)

    3. Finally, does anyone have a person in their organisation who’s only role (or main role) is managing all this?

    Thanks,

    Ivan Wainewright

    Hi Ivan

    I hope this helps although all our fundraising is based here in head office,
    there are a number of departments all trying to capture gift Aid
    declarations.

    1) we have developed a standard gift aid declaration, circulated to all, to
    be used obviously as much as possible

    2) our database manager and myself address the issues of the claims and
    eligibility of payments aided by the Gift Aid helpline – which has proved
    really helpful. The number are: 0151 472 6036/6037

    If you need anymore information, please let me know
