As many of you know, Gift Aid is a great government scheme that means charities can claim back 25p for every £1 donated. What you may not know, is that charities are also able to claim Gift Aid as part of a crowdfunding campaign. For those that are eligible, it’s a really simple process and could help you raise a significant amount more for your cause. For example, if you're crowdfunding campaign raises £10,000, you could increase that to £12,500 with Gift Aid!
