There are two key components to a donation.
Firstly, the actual donation itself. This is received by our treasurer into the church bank account and is distributed to the appropriate fund. You can even put a reference in your donation if you would like it to be put toward a specific cause (e.g. toward a Youth weekend away)!
Secondly, the gift aid. Through your authorisation we can claim “gift aid” on your donation. This is simply a process where the government provide charities with 25p for every £1 that has been donated. This is such a crucial aspect to donation so if you are donating to us and haven’t done so already PLEASE provide consent to claim gift aid. This process is of no cost to you but makes such a difference to the financing of all we do.
