How can I give?

At Soul Survivor Watford we contribute and give to the life and work of the church in many different ways. While the information below relates to financial giving, other pages on this site explain the variety of ways you can get involved and give.

We are so thankful for the generosity of those who give to Soul Survivor Watford.


What is Gift Aid?

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. The benefit to Soul Survivor Watford is that it can recover the basic rate of income tax, currently 25p for each pound given at no extra cost to you.                                 

If you are a UK higher rate (40 per cent) or additional rate (45 per cent) income tax payer and you give to Soul Survivor Watford directly you can also choose to allow us to reclaim the basic rate tax through Gift Aid. Then you are also able to recover, through your tax return, the difference between the basic rate tax that Soul Survivor Watford recovers and the higher or additional rate that you have paid.

If you give via Payroll Giving then, because you are giving 'pre-tax', you are able to pass on the full benefit of your tax to Soul Survivor Watford immediately.
