The most helpful way to support St James' is to set up a regular standing order as this helps us with our financial planning. The easiest way to do this is to use the 'donate' button below. Alternatively, you can acquire a standing order form from the church office. Please fill in your details and then return it to us at the address below. We will send this to your bank and they will automatically process your gifts each month in accordance with your instructions.
You can change or cancel a standing order at any time with your bank. For budgeting purposes, it’s a great help if you can let the Treasurer know if you do this or plan to do so.
If you wish to make a one-off gift, this can be done by using the donate button below, by making a donation by cash, cheque or charity voucher (payable to “St James' Church PCC”) on a Sunday or by posting a cheque/charity voucher (no cash please) to the Treasurer at the address below.
Give as You Earn - Payroll Giving
Many employers have a GAYE Payroll Giving scheme which is a means of giving from your income before tax is deducted. Some employers will match an employee’s charitable giving so it is worth enquiring about your company’s policy. St James' is registered as a charitable trust with the name 'The Parochial Church Council of the Ecclesiastical Parish of St James, Westgate and Garlinge' and our charity number is 1136690.
Please consider making your gift tax efficient
If you are a UK taxpayer, it is a great help if you also complete a Gift Aid form (included with the standing order form) as this enables us to reclaim basic rate income tax on any standing order or one-off donations you make.
US and UK taxpayers, using the CAF American Donor Fund you will be able to claim UK Gift Aid, UK tax relief and get a tax deduction in the USA. Find out more here at the CAF American Donor Fund website.
