Financial gifts to the mission and ministry of our Parish
Corfe Mullen Parochial Church Council (PCC) use the Parish Giving Scheme as a way of ensuring a regular source of income for our church.
It is very simple: anyone may donate, the only thing that is fixed is the date on which a donor’s contribution is collected – it’s always the first day of the month. The donor decides the amount they will give, and how often – monthly, quarterly or annually; and may allow the PGS to apply an annual increase to an individual’s contribution in line with the rate of inflation – they always contact the donor well in advance of any annual increase to check that the increase is acceptable. If the donor is also able to make a Gift Aid declaration, then PGS will reclaim 25% of any donation from HMRC.
All of the donor’s money goes to our church, plus the associated Gift Aid. Usually on the 10th of the month the basic donation gets to our bank, followed a few days later by the reclaimed Gift Aid. We are grateful that most of our regular donors give via this scheme which runs smoothly with very little admin from the parish required. Donors are able to give anonymously if they wish.
We are so grateful to all who give and ensure a regular income to enable the ministry and mission of the parish. PGS have a telephone service on 0333 002 1271, so prospective donors can set up a regular Direct Debit donation to their parish over the phone – no forms to fill in! This has proved very popular.
If you wish to join the scheme you will need to quote our parish code: 340634619 and the call handlers will guide you through the process.
