Gift Aid is good news for the Church: It increases our giving by 25%
All that is required is that the donor must pay UK income tax or capital gains tax, at any rate, at least equal to the amount of tax being reclaimed, and give their offering or donation through offering envelopes or by bank standing order or by cheque to establish the necessary audit trail.
Donors must also sign a Gift Aid declaration form, which gives the name of the congregation and the donor’s name and address (including postcode).
The easiest way for the Church to increase funds is through Gift Aid. If you give £1.00, the Church receives 25p. Many people give through Bank Standing Orders that can either be monthly, quarterly or annually. You can also change the regular amount you are giving.
You can download a Gift Aid declaration form then send it to me letting me know if you would like to give through weekly envelopes, Standing Order or by cheque. A form to arrange a standing order through your bank can also be downloaded from this website.
It really will make a difference.
