Money matters

Every last penny will help to make a difference.

Capturing every last penny

Gift Aid

Gift Aid increases the value of individual donations and sponsorship by 25p for every £1 donated at no extra cost to the donor. A donation of £10 becomes £12.50.

There are some conditions:

  • The donation must be made by an individual
  • The donation must be made from personal money
  • The donation must not be from a fundraising event, e.g. a cake sale
  • The donor must give their home address
  • The donor must tick the Gift Aid box on online or paper sponsor forms or complete a Gift Aid form
  • The donor is responsible for making up any difference if they pay less income tax/capital gains tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all their donations in that tax year

Matched Giving

  • Some employees match all or part of the funds raised by their staff or some prefer to donate in other ways (e.g. prizes) 
  • Read our tips on approaching organisations

Handling money

In advance

  • Record money raised and spent and keep hold of all receipts and invoices
  • Will you need a float?

On the day

  • How will you keep the money you have raised safe?
  • Do your helpers know what to do?
