The church often receives donations of money for general purposes or to help meet a specific need such as the new sound system or roof repairs. This note sets out the procedure to be followed when such donations are made or to help you answer a query from a prospective donor.
All donations should be sent to the Treasurer, Geoff Golder
His contact details are:
2 Barton Way,
Tel 01823 491446
Cheques should be made payable to North Curry PCC
Geoff Golder will give relevant bank details to make a payment electronically.
If applicable, donors should be asked to complete a Gift Aid declaration setting out
- their full name
- their home address
- the name of the charity (St Peter and St Paul's Church - North Curry PCC)
- the amount of the donation,
- and say that it's a Gift Aid donation
This will enable us to reclaim the tax and so maximise the gift.
The Treasurer will inform the Vicar and PCC Secretary when he has received a donation. The Vicar will acknowledge all donations (except those given at weddings and funerals and other such events in the church) using a standard letter that does not mention the amount, except in obvious cases where a non standard letter is essential.
Donations made specifically on Gift Day, normally held around the time of Harvest Festival, are subject to the same general guidance.
