If you give regularly to St Thomas’s through the Parish Giving Scheme (PGS), then your Gift Aid declaration to PGS is part of your sign-up to the scheme. PGS will claim back the tax on your donations and send it to the church.
If you make any other donations to St Thomas’s, then if you are a tax-payer, it is a great benefit to the church if you can give tax-efficiently (we can claim back 25p for every £1 you donate). Please find a Gift Aid form here
. Please complete it and return it to the Church Office.
More information about Gift Aid is available on https://www.gov.uk/donating-to-charity/gift-aid
. Your donations will qualify for Gift Aid as long as they’re not more than four times what you have paid in tax in that tax year (6 April to 5 April).
A newly completed form may be applied to donations up to the last four years, if that is what you want and you let us know when you submit the form. You only need to fill in one Gift Aid form for St Thomas’s to cover gifts to the General and restricted funds.
