Donor Declaration Made Simple

Take advantage of HMRC's Gift Aid scheme by first obtaining your donor's declaration.

With the exception of cash donations under GASDS, charities can only claim this benefit once the donor has granted permission. Philantro's donation form makes this process simple by asking questions to determine eligibilty in a natural order and only solicting the declaration from donors for which it apply. Our approach streamlines completion, increases donation conversions and avoids confusing donors for which this benefit doesn't apply.
