You can now prompt donors after the transaction has been made, to provide the details required for your charity to process Gift Aid, and to hear more from you by email.
What Donors See
After donating a screen appears thanking them, providing them with unticked consent boxes to elect to share their details required for you to process Gift Aid and hear more by email.
Unlocking Gift Aid & Donor Email features
1. Login to your charity account dashboard
2. Click on Edit Profile
You can turn this off at any time if you no longer wish to collect this information.
In the same section 'Collect Gift Aid and Donor Emails' in your dashboard you'll find links to download the CSV files. These secure links to the CSV reports appears on this page once users start to elect to share.
A full CSV report with 'All Transaction Data' is available from this page in the dashboard too. Please login and read our Guidance PDF available on the Gift Aid and Donor Email page with more details.
How Collecting Data Works
Both of these options are presented after the transaction has taken place, before they send their e-cards.
The Gift Aid feature captures: First Name, Last Name, First Line of Address, Postcode, Amount Donated, Transaction Date and Time, Transaction ID. Your charity can then use that information to process Gift Aid and add 25p to every £1 donated.
The Email feature captures: Email Address, First Name, Last Name. Your charity can then add these emails to your newsletter or mailing list, and thank them for their donation by email.
We don't charge to access to these premium features, but we do require that you link through to your landing page on DontSendMeACard.com following these instructions so that supporters know to give to your charity via the initiative.
