Gift Aid

Gift Aid is a really valuable source of income for the church since we can reclaim the basic rate income tax you pay. You can also download a Gift Aid form here.

UK tax payers
If you are a UK tax payer (Income or Capital Gains Tax) and would like us to be able to claim back the basic rate tax through the government's gift aid scheme, you will need to fill in, sign and return to us an ongoing Gift Aid declaration if you have not done so already. The benefit to the Parish of Cove is that it can recover the basic rate of income tax, currently 25p for each pound given at no extra cost to you. 

Higher rate UK tax payers: 
If you pay higher or additional rate tax, you may recover this through your own tax return. Alternatively, you may pass on this extra tax to CCW4 by giving via your employer's payroll giving scheme. If you are a UK higher rate (40 per cent) or additional rate (45 per cent) income tax payer and you give to CCW4 directly and allow us to reclaim the basic rate tax through Gift Aid then you may recover, through your tax return, the difference between the basic rate tax that CCW4 recovers and the higher or additional rate that you have paid.



You can give by cash in the collection boxes at our sites, using a numbered envelope if you are a tax payer so that we can reclaim Gift Aid from HMRC.


If you would like to support refurbishment work to our churches to enable us to better serve our community, or the important work undertaken by the Open Door drop-in centre, you can make a donation using the MyDonate button below. Please specify in the message how you would like the donation to be used.
