What is Gift Aid?
Gift Aid allows Sacred Heart Church to claim at least 25% extra on top of your donation from the HM Revenue & Customs. This means that for every £1 you donate, We can claim an extra 25p (subject to current tax rates) direct from the Government.
Does your donation qualify for Gift Aid?
By ticking the link below, you can print off the declaration that you are a UK taxpayer (for the current year beginning 6th April) and you have paid (or are going to pay) the Government more tax throughout that year than we are claiming back. If you have donated £10, for example, and have indicated that you would like us to claim the tax back, we can claim £2.50 from the HM Revenue & Customs. You must, therefore, be sure that you have paid (or will pay) more than £2.50 in Income or Capital Gains tax for that tax year. This is because the Government cannot give the money you've already paid back to us if you haven't paid any!
