Given that parishioners are sadly unable to attend mass currently, those of you who normally donate by way of the offertory basket collection or by Gift Aid envelopes, will be unable to do so in this way for some time to come. In order to keep parish finances in good health, we are offering parishioners several options to continue regular giving.
Ways to Give
There is now a new DONATE option available to parishioners, set up by our diocese, whereby you can make one-off, occasional or regular donations to our parish. When making your donation, please make sure to leave a message which includes the following: “I would like my donation to go to St Dunstans Woking“. This will ensure your donation is given to our parish. GiftAid helps our parish to thrive. Please GiftAid your donation, if you are eligible. You will be asked whether you would like to share your details with the diocese. Telling us who you are really helps, as it means the diocese can share details of your donation with us.
The link to this new donate option is below.
Donations can also be made by you direct, through your bank, with the parish details being St Dunstans Woking, Sort Code 40-05-20, Account Number 41077325.
If you are already a GiftAid donor, please also reference your six-digit GiftAid donor number.
You may also like to consider joining the parish Gift Aid scheme, which enables the parish to receive an additional 25% in tax for all the monies donated by taxpayers.
Please see the GiftAid section below for further details.
Existing GiftAid donors who donate by Standing Order may wish to consider increasing the sum that they donate at this time. To do this simply notify your bank of any change and then please send our Parish GiftAid Organiser, Ian White, whose contact details are in the GiftAid section below, written confirmation of the new sum and the date from which the change starts.
Likewise, existing GiftAid donors who donate by envelope may wish to use the Standing Order option as a means of continuing to donate over the coming months.
To do this, please use the link to the downloadable Standing Order form below, complete and sign the form and then return to the parish office.
You can either set up a Standing Order to donate a regular sum via your bank or by using GiftAid envelopes to donate any sum any time.
If you choose to donate by Standing Order, please download, complete and sign the following forms: Gift Aid Declaration, Standing Order and Pledge Card and return them to the parish office.
If you choose to donate via envelope, please download, complete and sign the following forms: GiftAid Declaration and Pledge Card and return them to the parish office.
For any queries, please contact our parish GiftAid organiser Ian White at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 01932 340747.
Leaving a legacy to a charity is a very popular way of helping others when you have gone. By leaving a gift to the parish in your will, you will help make an important long-term contribution to the work of the Church. It will be free of inheritance tax, so all you need to do is to tell your solicitor or will writer, that you would like to leave a legacy to the parish. Click here for further details.
