Why aren’t you claiming GiftAid on the donations?

Like many unions, NUS UK is not a charity, so donations to NUS UK are not eligible for GiftAid. NUS Charity is able to claim GiftAid on donations, however the Students Urgent Action Fund is for campaigning for students, and any money to the NUS Charity could not be used in this way, although it’s something that NUS will explore in the future.
