Waldensian Review No.124 Summer 2014 - Page 17

Government gives to Waldenses Too good to be true? No! For every donation which you make to the Waldensian Church Missions, the Government will add a further 25%, providing you are a tax-payer. Since 5 April 2000 the new Gift Aid scheme has replaced Deeds of Covenant and the process is much simpler. This applies to all donations of any size or frequency. Thus a gift of only £1 made once will be increased by 25% as will a monthly donation of £100. All that is required is for the donor to complete a simple declaration in the form given below and to forward this to the Treasurer whose address is on the inside of the back page. Once this form has been completed it covers all future donations by the same person. Unlike Deeds of Covenant, you are not committed to regular giving for a number of years. Some of you have already completed such a form, but for those who have not, I would urge you to consider seriously this opportunity for the Waldensian Church Missions to benefit from the Government’s generosity, but more importantly, to enable our giving to our friends in Italy to be increased. ✄ WALDENSIAN CHURCH MISSIONS Registered Charity No. 277255 GIFT AID DECLARATION To: Waldensian Church Missions, 5 Woodgate Close, Woodgate, Chichester, West Sussex, po20 3ta I (title) . . . . . . .
