During these challenging times it's important to get creative about finding new revenue streams.
As Ben blogged about this week, there is a lot of money being left on the table in the form of unclaimed Gift Aid.
A Gift Aid audit is the perfect way to find revenue that was there all along, and with Beacon it's now very easy to collect Gift Aid declarations without requiring a supporter to fill in a donation or membership form.
You can now add a Gift Aid section to a standard Beacon signup form, which allows you to collect a Gift Aid declaration and link it to an existing supporter.
When a form is submitted Beacon will automatically add all of the eligible payments from the last 4 years to your next Gift Aid claim. There's no work to do at all - just wait for HMRC to send you the cash!
We've written some helpful documentation to help you get the best out of this feature.
First, here is a guide to running a Gift Aid declaration campaign.
Next, we've updated our documentation about how to collect Gift Aid declarations through Beacon.
Finally, if you're new to collecting Gift Aid with Beacon we have a brand new video introduction which will take you through how to get set up.
Gift Aid Declaration forms are live and ready for your to try right now on all Beacon plans. Log in to create a new Gift Aid declaration form.
