MANY charities benefited from a significant increase in income from Gift Aid donations last year according to Gift Aid IT specialists BMcAzurri, whose customers saw a 22% increase in Gift Aid income in 2014 compared to 2013.

The rise in Gift Aid income across BMcAzurri’s portfolio of large and small charities is being attributed to a combination of greater awareness of the Gift Aid process and having the right IT system in place to quickly and effectively boost income from Gift Aid donations.

Many charities have seen significant increases in their shop estates as a result of having a successful Gift aid Retail system. The Salvation Army have seen their estate grow by over 50% since implementing the BMcAzurri system and the majority of their hospice clients have expanded by an average of average of 15% in terms of the number of shops.

This kind of positive news seems to be a common theme amongst BMcAzurri’s growing portfolio of clients who are either first time users of a Gift Aid Retail system or experienced charity organisations  who have migrated to the system due to concerns with the performance of their existing Gift Aid system.

Alastair Petrie from BMcAzurri explains:

“ Second generation systems are more focused and easier to use than the early systems which proved to be more cumbersome and clunky thus influencing the impact on the business and the attitudes of staff towards Gift aid The BMcAzurri Gift Aid system has been designed specifically for use in the charity setting, it is extremely efficient, cost effective and provides a quick return on investment which is critical for charities who need to be extra vigilant with expenditure.

“More importantly, it is giving charities a real opportunity to generate critical additional income which can be reinvested, perhaps to fund planned developments, improve existing services, introduce new services or expand its portfolio of retail shops.”
