UK Charities urged to take part in 2024’s Great Gift Aid Hunt (up to 19th April 2024)

After 2023’s Swiftaid Great Gift Aid Hunt found over £1.3 million in additional Gift Aid for good causes, charities are invited to register to take part in this year’s hunt.

Every year, an estimated £564 million worth of Gift Aid goes unclaimed. Now in its second year, the Great Gift Aid Hunt aims to help charities access the Gift Aid they’re entitled and charities have until 19 April to take part.

To take part, charities need to register, and those eligible will then be asked to upload their donation information so that Swiftaid can match donors. It will then notify them that Gift Aid will be added to their donation. The charity receives the final report to update their internal systems and Swiftaid submits a claim to HMRC on their behalf.  

Beth Michael, Co-Founder of Swiftaid said:

Swiftaid acts on behalf of over eight million UK taxpayers. By simply uploading their donation data, charities can check against these individuals for Gift Aid that was previously missed. Think of what an additional 25% income could do for your charity right now, with minimal effort and resource.”
