What is Gift Aid?
It is a scheme designed to encourage donors – who must be taxpayers – to sign a declaration form so that all their donations to the charity (R.C. Diocese of Southwark) can be treated as gift aid donations. The donations can be of any amount, and there is no lower or upper limit and they do not have to be of a fixed amount or frequency. By signing the forms, donors can ensure that the parish gets a substantial refund from the Inland Revenue without having to increase their level of giving.
In order for St Peter and the Guardian Angels Church to benefit from your donations:
- You must be a U.K. tax payer
- You must complete a Gift Aid Declaration Form. Your contributions must be easily identified as coming from you (once you sign up for the Gift Aid Scheme, you will receive a box of envelopes – this helps identify the donation coming from you. All you have to do is place your donations inside the envelope!)
For every pound you give, your parish will get back an additional 25 pence from the Inland Revenue. This comes from the taxes you have already paid HMRC! So it is not an additional donation from you and it will not cost you extra. Complete the Gift Aid form below and send it to Diane Rampling, the Parish organiser.
You can set up a Standing Order with your bank to make a donation at regular intervals. Please complete the attached Bankers form and send a copy to your bank and do not forget to complete a gift Aid Declaration form.
