How Much Has Been Raised for Charity on Funeral-Notices in the last 12 Months?
That's a great question and one we are really proud to answer:
Our audience have raised £1 Million for charities in the last 12 months. One Million Pounds - Thank you so much. In this blog we will explore how Gift Aid adds even more value on to the £1 million and how many people have helped us raise such a fantastic amount for charities.
Yes it does. Charities love Gift Aid as it allows them to claim 25% - 25p out of every £1 - on top of the amount donated. It is really simple for charities to claim Gift Aid on the donations transferred to them from funeral-notices.co.uk as, with the donor's consent, we provide them with the information they need.
On top of the million pounds we have transferred to charities in the last twelve months, we have also provided them with information to claim Gift Aid worth a total of £184,126 - a massive addition and a great benefit to charities who have seen their revenues hit since the outbreak of the pandemic.
74.19% of our audience who chose to make a donation to charity in the last 12 months elected to add Gift Aid. It is so simple to help charities by adding Gift Aid; at the point of donation simply click to confirm you are a UK taxpayer and are eligible and we will provide the charity(ies) with the information they require.
33,248 individual donations contributed to the total raised in the last rolling year. Thank you. Along with our donation partners Donatis, funeral-notices.co.uk provides the donation facility on your notices, the amount raised is down to you; our audience and the friends, family, neighbours of loved ones who choose to make a donation.
We recently updated funeral-notices.co.uk to allow people who make a donation on notices for their loved one to include a message of condolence at the same time. These messages display beneath the notice.
This has proved really popular and we are seeing a number of family and friends replying to the donation message with their gratitude.
As proud of we are of this milestone number, we couldn't do it without each and every one of our amazing audience who trust funeral-notices.co.uk to announce the passing of their loved ones and return time after time to view the notices we publish daily.
Thank you to Funeral Directors and family members who choose to include online donations on their notices.
Thank you to every single person who made a donation in the last twelve months.
We at funeral-notices.co.uk look forward to helping you achieve the next milestone in charitable donations and continue to be grateful for every pound we are able to send to local, national, international charities and local good causes on your behalf.
