How to Get More Money From Gift Aid Without Really Trying with Bill Lewis and Barry Gower

  • Creative and innovative Gift Aid Declarations – getting more bang for your buck.
  • GASDS –De-mystifying the ‘top-up’ and community building options
  • Unsung heroes of Gift Aid fundraising – Shares, Land, and Buildings;  charity shops, entrance fees and more.
  • Proper structure can mean so much more – charity dinners and auctions, memberships and friends of, in memoriam and ore.
