Thank you for considering donating to the work of St. Georges. Money goes to our activities to reach out into the community: to work with the schools, to provide youth groups, to host community fun days, to provide a hall for uniformed groups and toddler groups, to provide social clubs, and to encourage people to explore Christianity, as well as for running the church itself.
Donating to St. George’s Church There are a number of ways you can do this:
1. Regular giving by Standing Order You will need to contact your bank to get their form for setting up Standing Orders. Please fill in the details of your bank account and set up the Standing Order to St Georges Church, Sort Code 40-52-40, Account Number 00030405.
2. Direct Bank Transfer Direct bank transfers can be made to our CAF Bank account: St Georges Church, Sort Code 40-52-40, Account Number 00030405. If you make a donation please contact the treasurer: email firstname.lastname@example.org so that we know who the donation has come from and can arrange gift aid claims if appropriate. If your donation is for a particular project/reason please also let the treasurer know, thank you.
3. Ad-hoc donations We provide pre-printed collection envelopes (yellow envelopes) in church for you to use to put your gift in the collection plate at the back of church. The envelopes allow you to fill in your name and address so we can claim the gift-aid (see below), but there is no need to fill in these details if you don’t want us to claim gift aid on your donation.
Please make any cheques out to St Georges Church 4. Gift Aid In any of the above cases, if you pay tax in the UK, you can increase the amount St George’s receives by filling in a Gift Aid declaration. Provided you pay enough tax to cover the amount we would reclaim, St George’s can claim this tax back from the UK Government as Gift Aid, which increases the amount of your giving by 25 % at no extra cost to you. If you are able to Gift Aid your giving, please complete the Gift Aid declaration from the link below. and return it to the office.
