How we can help you

Many organisations find at one time or another they need support to run an effective Gift Aid Scheme. Whatever support you need to deliver a scheme in order to remain HMRC Compliant we have something to fit all budgets.

  • Bespoke in-house training
  • Gift Aid discovery days
  • Need to pass an audit
  • Classroom teaching

What we offer

Discovery day

For many organisations Gift Aid represents a significant income stream, a good Gift Aid Scheme is wholly dependent on best practises, avoiding the risk of failing a Gift Aid Tax Claim audit. To help charities avoid risk while maximising income we work with you to identify any areas of concern. We know a full Health Check audit can be daunting, so we offer our confidential Discovery Day.

What we do

We meet with your teams to identify issues, concerns or just the need for validation of gift aid processes. We work with you to look for opportunities to maximise Gift Aid, assessing skill requirements for all staff involved in the Scheme, especially front line staff including volunteers, and assess the impact of your chosen CRM on your ability to control the Gift Aid process, working to put Gift Aid at the heart of your Organisation, and so much more.

What we offer

Bespoke workshops

For over 20 years we have been providing charity people with the skills required to manage their Gift Aid programmes. Classroom learning isn’t always the most cost-effective way to train your teams, bespoke learning focuses on the particular areas of concern at your organisation to help teams better understand Gift Aid to remain HMRC Compliant.

What we do

Through a minimum of two workshops, each workshop lasts approximately two hours, the first workshop will introduce your organisation to the “how, what, when and why” of the Gift Aid Scheme, to ensure all teams whatever their responsibilities, are aware of the need to understand there is an end to end process involved in getting Gift Aid right.

The second workshop is all about how Gift Aid is working at your charity, what needs to be improved and how Gift Aid will work so much more effectively as a cross organisational responsibility.

Other workshop opportunities we offer

Further sessions available include the benefit rules for event teams, Gift Aid for the charity shops (Retail Gift Aid), and Gift Aid for visitor sites and their volunteers or seasonal workers.

Prefer a classroom setting?

We have been running Gift Aid Essentials workshops since 2004 and throughout the Pandemic. We find mixed Gift Aid ability training helps give people the confidence to talk about issues which concern them.

The Charity Knowledge Hub


Why choose our Gift Aid Learning Centre?

We have over twenty years’ experience of delivering Gift Aid learning to the sector. We believe knowledge is the door to unlocking a scheme often veiled in myths, we empower organisations to own the processes and maximise their Gift Aid potential.

Claiming Gift Aid that is rightly yours

Every year over £700million is left unclaimed or wrongly claimed under the Gift Aid Scheme.  Income which we believe belongs to our sector, and yet after 22 years charities remain far too cautious, preferring not to claim Gift Aid in case it “all goes horribly wrong”.

Maximise your Gift Aid scheme

Often, charities have relied on one person to manage the Scheme. And however competent that individual may have been, when they eventually move on, so does the Gift Aid knowledge. At GES, we believe the Scheme lies at the heart of your organisation.

Empower Knowledge, Learn Skills

At GES we passionately believe in empowering charities with the knowledge and skills to run your Gift Aid Scheme effectively. We train, support, and help you manage the Scheme to ensure you maximise Gift Aid income while minimising risk.

Testimonials image

“I started working for my Charity in March 2018 and didn’t really know much about the Gift Aid Rules, but ever since I attended the gift aid workshop with Phil Robson of Giftease Solutions in conjunction with Elanor from the Charity Knowledge Hub in June 2019, I have learned loads!

The course was a mixture of slides and information which explained the basics and highlighted the main points for follow up action back at work. There followed webinars both in person and online and even throughout the pandemic I felt supported.

My charity has definitely benefited from Phil’s support. She always explained things simply and her gift aid knowledge is second to none. “

Caroline, Katharine House Hospice

“A visitor came to the front desk today and said our new Gift Aid Donation sign was so good that it was the first time he has ever understood why organisations may ask for Gift Aid when giving an additional donation!

It is super popular with Volunteers too; we love having something we can show our visitors.

Thanks for the lovely new signs!
