Focus on Funding Forum: Gift Aid with Embrace Finance


25 April 2022/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

Find out all you need to know about Gift Aid and the GASDS to make the most out of gifts and donations for your organisation.

Gift Aid and the Gift Aid Small Donations Scheme (GASDS) should be an easy win for many small charities, but the rules and admin surrounding it can feel a bit daunting.

In this 2 hour session we are going to start with a whistle stop tour on the basics of the administration and how the system works.  And then move on to looking at what donations are eligible for Gift Aid and GASDS, and what to be mindful of.

This session includes plenty of opportunities to ask questions.

The session is led by Rachel Cooper from Welbeck, an experienced charity finance professional with over 20 years experience in the sector.

This is an introductory level session suitable for employed staff or trustees who are managing the finances of small charities or dealing with Gift Aid for the first time, or who would just like a refresher.
