Payroll Giving Via Your Employer
Many employers offer Payroll Giving which allows you to give directly to St Michael’s from your salary before tax is deducted. This means if you give £100 per month and are a basic rate taxpayer, the gift will only cost you £80 from your net pay. If you pay a higher rate of tax, £100 a month will only cost you £60 from your net pay. To find out if your employer offers Payroll Giving, contact your HR office.
Charitable Aid Agencies
You may wish to give to St Michael’s via a charitable aid agency such as Stewardship, CAF, Charities Trust, or Charitable Giving. These agencies are useful for those who give to multiple charities and wish to have their giving recorded in one place or for those who wish to give anonymously to St Michael’s.

You will then be texted a link to complete your donation.
Gift Aid is a scheme available to charities which means they can claim extra money from HMRC. The charity can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you donate, as long as you’ve paid the basic rate of tax and make the donation from your own funds. That means Gift Aid can increase the value of your donations by 25%, so St Michael’s will benefit further from your giving.
UK taxpayers can also complete a simple Gift Aid form, which means the government will donate an extra 25% on top of your giving at no cost to you. What is Gift Aid?
