Tackling the Gift Aid gap – new integration between JustGiving and SwiftAid (27 May 2021)

JustGiving and Streeva (which operates the SwiftAid solution) are joining together to integrate their systems to help maximise Gift Aid claims. Oliver Shaw Latimer, Director of Global Fintech at Blackbaud and David Michael, CEO and founder of Streeva addressed the following issues in their recent CTG Expert Insight session.

  • The challenge of the ‘Gift Aid gap’ – why it’s there, why it’s an increasing problem, how much the sector is losing through this
  • Narrowing the gap through retrospective claims
  • New JustGiving and Swiftaid integration and benefits to charities
  • Possible future functional extensions (including via Open Banking, individual taxpayer profiles via ‘deeper’ connection to HMRC, wider network integrations).

A recording of the session can be accessed here (approx 1 hour) and the slides can be downloaded here. We hope to publish responses to all the questions that were unanswered during the meeting in due course.
