How does it work?

Integrating Swiftaid into your donation flow via a simple API makes the Gift Aid process effortless for donors.

Swiftaid recognises donors by the details linked to their Swiftaid account, for example, email address, full name and address etc.

Swiftaid then utilises authority as a donor intermediary to create Gift Aid declarations on their behalf, this is done every time they make a qualifying donation through any integrated flow.

Gift Aid claims are then sent to HMRC, and the charity receives the Gift Aid from HMRC directly.
