As a registered charity, the Archdiocese of Cardiff can claim Gift Aid on donations given by a donor who is a UK tax payer and chooses to Gift Aid their contribution. By completing a Gift Aid Declaration form for every £1 donated the diocese can claim an extra 25p from HM Revenues and Customs (HMRC) at no extra cost to the donor.
Each parish has a Gift Aid co-ordinator who volunteer their time to track and record Gift Aided donations. The Finance Office collects all the Gift Aid information from the co-ordinators and completes a Gift Aid return for the Diocese. The funds are then allocated back to the parishes according to what the parish co-ordinators submitted.
Throughout the year we have second collections that come with a separate Gift Aid envelope. These returns are sent directly to the cause involved and treated separately from parish donations.
If you are a taxpayer in the UK and do not currently Gift Aid your donations to your local parish, please contact your local parish to complete and return a Gift Aid from. It couldn’t be any easier.
