How does claiming Gift Aid work? (for UK Charities only)

Log in to your charity account on GivenGain under "Settings > Account" and tick the "Enable Gift Aid support for GBP donations" option. This provides donors with the option to include Gift Aid as part of their donations.

All Gift Aid donation declarations and schedules are available in your GivenGain charity account, under Reports > Gift Aid. To claim Gift Aid, export this information and submit it to HMRC online at You should receive payment within 5 weeks.
