Gift Aid

giftaidGift Aid

Under UK Tax Law, charities can reclaim the basic rate tax deducted from the donations and regular giving received from UK taxpayers. St Margaret Clitherow’s Church is a parish of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Southwark ┬áCIO Registered Incorporated Charity Number 1173050.

Monetary gifts have to be identifiable; we must know who the gift is from and the donor (giver) must agree that the donation (giving) is to be treated as received under the Gift Aid Scheme. We have Gift Aid Envelopes for the use of occasional givers which bear a Gift Aid Declaration that the donor must complete together with their name and address.

For regular donors, we encourage giving by standing order direct from their bank to ours; and in junction with this we ask for a general Gift Aid Declaration to be made that covers all payments made after the signing of the declaration, into the future.

Gift Aid Envelopes, Bank Standing Order forms and general Gift Aid Declarations are available from the Presbytery.
