Charities get ready for Gift Aid Awareness Day 2021

The 2021 #TickTheBox campaign is a chance to demonstrate impact and thank donors.

Gift Aid is worth £1.3 billion to the sector, but every year more than £500 million goes unclaimed. Every penny counts for charities in 2021 so this year’s Gift Aid Awareness Day is more important than ever. On 7 October 2021, charities will take to social media to raise awareness of this vital tax relief.

To help charities claim more, a range of activities for charities will be held on the day:

  • a Gift Aid webinar with HMRC, open to AIM members. Book your place
  • a dedicated Gift Aid helpline for charities run by Buzzacott
  • the publication of the 2021 Guide to Gift Aid
