St Joseph’s Church is a charitable body which is able to benefit from Gift Aid donations.

If you are a UK taxpayer, you could add 28p to every pound you give to St Joseph’s parish at no extra cost to yourself through the Gift Aid scheme. For example, if you give £10 to St Joseph’s using Gift Aid, that gift is worth £12.82 to us.

The basic requirement of the Gift Aid scheme is that you complete a simple Gift Aid Declaration, (download here) confirming that you are a taxpayer and that you are happy for us to reclaim the tax on your donations.

If you do not pay tax, you should not use Gift Aid.
