Gift Aid Awareness Day

In 2018 CFG launched the first Gift Aid Awareness Day with the aim to assist charities to encourage their donors to #tickthebox and Gift Aid their eligible donations. We also shared expert advice to help charities maximise their income by effectively claiming Gift Aid.

This year we’re planning for an even bigger and better Gift Aid Awareness Day on Thursday 8 October 2020.

We want to reduce the £560million of potential unclaimed Gift Aid by raising awareness so as many people as possible understand how Gift Aid can increase their donation with no additional cost to them, as well as helping charities with brand new resources, guidance and advice.

This page will be updated with new assets for you to share with your donors and networks.


Last year we also put together an exciting range of resources and activities for charity finance teams to get involved in which are still valid today.
