Gift Aid

Parish finances rely completely upon individual offerings.  Money for priest’s stipend and expenses, together with the upkeep and maintenance of church buildings and infrastructure, needs to be supplied by parishioners.

 

If you are a taxpayer and give regularly to the Church, you can increase the value you give by nearly a third – AT NO EXTRA COST TO YOURSELF.  If you make a Gift Aid Declaration, the Government allows the Church to reclaim the Income and / or Capital Gains Tax you have already paid on money you give to the Church.

 

The Gift Aid Declaration:

  • Does not need to be signed, only a date
  • Has no lower or upper thresholds for donations
  • Covers all future donations for the lifetime of the donor
  • May be cancelled at any time
