There are many ways of giving to St Alfege Church
Thank you so much for your generosity. Every gift makes a difference.
We encourage regular donations towards the upkeep and mission of St Alfege Church. Regular giving enables St Alfege Church to be plan accordingly.
For those able to make a significant lump sum payment, Gift Aiding a donation is a tax efficient way of contributing one or more gifts, meaning that your gift increases in value to the church by a quarter at no extra cost to you.
Pledging over a period
This is often the most efficient way of contributing, since it spreads the contribution over a number of years. This both helps to make a larger gift affordable and enables the church to predict future income with a higher degree of certainty.
Tax efficient giving (Gift Aid)
As a registered charity, St Alfege Church can reclaim tax at the basic rate on all donations made under the Gift Aid scheme. With the basic rate of tax at 20%, the church receives £25 for every £100 you donate, at no extra cost to you. A higher-rate tax payer receives other benefits. Donations of shares, land and buildings are also extremely tax effective and it possible to give through a trust, a company or through a legacy.
Making a bequest
If you are a UK taxpayer please make sure you sign a St Alfege Church Gift Aid form which enables us to claim 25p in every £1 of your giving from the Inland Revenue. Please contact the church office form more information.
