IF YOU GIVE TO THE CHURCH, GIFT AID IT!
Gift Aid is a scheme designed to encourage the faithful to support the Church financially from every contribution they make without having to spend anything extra. The donor must be a taxpayer. He/She is expected to sign a Declaration Form so that all his/her donation to the charity (R.C. Diocese of Southwark) can be treated as a Gift Aid contribution. The donations can be of any amount, 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 parishes get a substantial refund from the Inland Revenue without having to increase their level of giving.
If you are a taxpayer, please Gift Aid your donation. The government will top up your gift by 25 percent, meaning a £20 offering becomes £25, at no cost to you. Thank You.
