St Paul’s, Honiton
This is the backbone of the church’s finance as it allows us to plan for the future with confidence.
Where possible, we encourage donors to register for Gift Aid. This is done by completing a simple declaration form in advance. This government tax rebate scheme increases the value of your donations considerably at no extra cost to you.
We have two schemes available:
This is our preferred method to receive donations as the administration of the scheme is operated centrally by the diocese on our behalf. Your Direct Debit can be set up through this scheme to make regular payments with the minimum of fuss.
If you need to change your Gift Aid eligibility or need any help with the Parish Giving Scheme, please contact the Stewardship Recorder (see below)
Some donors do not wish to use Direct Debit so we have this scheme available as an alternative. You can set up a Standing Order through your bank to make regular payments with the minimum of fuss.
Regular donors using bank transfer can place a token in the collection each week.
If you need to change your Gift Aid eligibility or have any queries about the Standing Order scheme, please contact the Stewardship Recorder (see below)
These are valuable sources of income and can be made by cash or cheque (payable to “PCC HONITON – GENERAL”). Again we encourage the use of Gift Aid wherever possible.
Simply take your donation to St Paul’s at any time and place it in the Wall Safe in the porch.
You need to place your donation in a yellow Gift Aid envelope before giving it to St Paul’s. You must complete your name and address details each time you use a yellow envelope so regular donors may prefer one of the Planned Giving schemes described above.
Simply take the Yellow Envelope containg your donation to St Paul’s at any time and place it in the Wall Safe in the porch.
St Paul’s has been fortunate over the years in the number of legacies it has received. These have enabled some major improvement and maintenance projects to be completed.
Please ask us for advice about including provision for St Paul’s in your will, or consult your solicitor.
You can give to St Paul’s at any time using on-line banking. Please ask at the Parish Office for details or contact the Stewardship Recorder. This giving can be subject to Gift Aid.
If you are a UK taxpayer please make donation through Gift Aid. St Paul’s is then able to claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give. Gift Aid is a scheme that allows any charity to claim a refund of tax the donor has paid on money given. This tax refund can be from tax already paid on income, investments or savings accounts.
For Regular donations, you will need to complete a Gift Aid declaration.
One-off donations will need to be made using a yellow envelope.
Fill in your name and address as this information is required by HMRC. But that is all you need to do – it is that straightforward. The church will, of course, treat your details as confidential.
You can sign up to raise funds for St Paul’s whilst you shop online at hundreds of e-store or use the site for your web searches. There is no additional cost to you.
There are also a wide range of special offers available through easyfundraising.org so you and St Paul’s will both benefit.
