Streeva Logo

Swiftaid is a solution created by Streeva; a fintech company on a mission to automate everyday processes by making transactions smarter.

Dedicated to make payments work better for everyone; Streeva is establishing the first global payment messaging network. An open platform for governments, payment providers and organisations to leverage payment data without compromising on privacy.

Through Streeva’s ability to combine new technologies with knowledge of legislation and payment processes, Streeva helps UK charities benefit with automatic Gift Aid through their solution.

Swiftaid is designed to help charities by automating the entire Gift Aid process with an aim to reduce the £564m of Gift Aid that goes unclaimed by UK charities every year. Through building partnerships, Swiftaid provides a seamless automated Gift Aid solution for the charity sector, giving charities more time and money to make the world a better place.

Streeva is now leading the technical aspect of an industry-wide collaborative project known as ‘The Future of Gift Aid’ which is utilising Swiftaid’s innovation to automate Gift Aid across all donation methods.

David and Beth Michael, are both siblings and the co-founders of Streeva. With David’s aptitude for solving problems with technology, and Beth’s keen determination and energy, their collaborative effort has seen them winning awards and forging strong relationships within the fintech and charity industries. The team has since grown into a blend of personalities and talents, all working towards a future where payments do more good for people, starting with tax relief for charities.
