Gift Aid

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid is a scheme by which the Government will add around 25p to every pound you give. It applies to all giving, whether your regular offering, or for a special one-off gift.

There are just two conditions:

  • You must pay enough tax on income or capital gains to cover the Government’s contribution. VAT or other taxes do not count!
  • You must complete a Gift Aid Declaration form and return it the treasurer. You will then be allocated a Gift Aid Number.

What else should I do?

In order to keep the Inland Revenue satisfied that we are entitled to claim back tax, we have to track your payments. If you give loose cash in the offering, please make sure it is in an envelope with your Gift Aid number clearly marked.

If you give online through Give.net or stewardship, each will automatically ask you for a Gift aid declaration and will add the tax to your gift before it comes to the church.
