Not a form of fundraising but a way to make extra money when you are fundraising. Uk tax payers can tell you that they want to add gift-aid to their donations and you then claim that money from HMRC. The current rate is 25p per pound. So you can increase your donations by 25%.
Willow Brooke, a pet sanctuary in Sheffield, runs a small charity shop. To claim Gift Aid against the sale of a donation they ask donors of goods for consent and collect their details. For regular donors they now keep their details on file. This is so that they don’t have to repeat their details every time they donate.

You can claim back 25p every time an individual donates £1 to your charity or community amateur sports club (CASC). This is called Gift Aid.
