Gift Aid is a scheme that allows your church to recover tax on your donations.
To be eligible to participate you must pay sufficient United Kingdom tax (Income or Capital Gains) to cover the amount your church will reclaim on your donation.
You can cancel at any time by contacting your church’s Gift Aid Secretary/Treasurer.
Return the completed Gift Aid Declaration to the Gift Aid Secretary/Treasurer. The church will record donations received from you and periodically recover an amount equal to basic rate tax on those donations. If the basic rate of tax is 20% your church will recover 25p for every £1 you donate.*
