Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Roman Catholic Church of St James and St William of York to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Roman Catholic Church of St James and St William of York we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Roman Catholic Church of St James and St William of York to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Roman Catholic Church of St James and St William of York will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Roman Catholic Church of St James and St William of York receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

Donation Total: £1.00 One Time

You are invited to prayerfully reflect on the priorities in your life and where God fits in amongst these priorities. We ask you to decide on the portion or percentage of your income that you can donate to the parish. We have received many gifts from God and we ask now that you return a portion of your treasure to God, in thanksgiving for the many gifts and blessings you have received. This is not about giving to the needs of the parish, it is about us needing to give in return for God’s blessings. We would like to suggest you consider giving one hours wage per week to the parish. In this way we thank God for all His blessings by returning to Him a portion of the treasure He has given to us, through our support of the parish of St James and St William of York.
