However you choose to give, as long as you are a UK taxpayer, Gift Aid enables you to boost the value of your donations by 25p for every £1 given. That means a £10 donation becomes £12.50, or a £100 donation becomes £125 and so on - at no additional cost to you. What a brilliant scheme!
If you haven’t already set this up, and you’d like to maximise your giving this way, please contact our Finance Manager using the adjacent form to request a Gift Aid Declaration. Alternatively the giving envelopes also have the Declaration included - these are available at Reception and on the chairs on Sunday meetings. You only need to do this once and as long as we know your gifts in future are from you, we will automatically request the Gift Aid on your behalf.
For higher rate taxpayers, you are also entitled to claim additional tax relief on your donations.
"We want to avoid any criticism of the way we administer this liberal gift. For we are taking pains to do what is right, not only in the eyes of the Lord but also in the eyes of men." 2 Corinthians 8:20-21 (NIV)
At Kerith, we want to be as open and as radical about money as Jesus was. You only have to walk around The Kerith Centre (built at a cost of £3.1 million in the middle of a recession, with over 99% of the money coming from the congregation) to realise that faith for money, a willingness to talk about money, and sacrificial giving have been part of our history and that they are firmly in our DNA.
As we look to grow to be a church of 2,000 which plants other churches of thousands then handling money correctly, and being willing to talk about it openly, is going to be a huge part of our future too. These pages look at some of the stats behind the current Kerith finances, and explain some of our financial processes, as part of being open about how your giving is handled and how that money is then used locally, nationally and internationally.
