Will donors be notified that our charity is claiming on their donations?

Swiftaid notifies donors by email when Gift Aid is identified. Donors are provided with an opportunity to cancel the Gift Aid on donations if they so wish.

Swiftaid operates under “Donor Intermediary Legislation” and must send an annual statement to donors by 31st May, detailing all Gift Aid added on their behalf over the previous tax year.

Swiftaid are not required to send a statement to an individual if the total value of donations in that tax year is £20 or less or only one Gift Aided donation is made in the tax year.
