Gift Aid: What is it?

Gift Aid is an income tax relief which increases the value of your donations by 25% because the Church can reclaim the basic rate of tax on your gift aid at no extra cost to you.

How do I give?

All you need to do is fill out a Gift Aid Declaration form. This is a statement confirming that you want to donate through Gift Aid and the Church will receive tax back on your donation.

Gift Aid Declaration forms can be requested through the Gift Aid Secretary (Miss Kathleen McConnell) or your elder.

Am I eligible for Gift Aid?

For the Church to claim Gift Aid on your donation you must first have paid UK Income or Capital Gains

Tax in that financial year. Please note from April 2017 the income tax personal allowance has increased

to £11,500 (£11,000 in 2016). If your income is below £11,500 you will no longer be able to claim Gift

Aid on eligible donations.
