Everything that happens here is made possible by your gifts of time, talents and money.
Your giving enables everything we do at St Margaret’s, including our four Sunday Services, work with children and families, outreach to the 10 schools in the Parish as well as many social action projects.
All the happens is made possible by those who pray, serve and give to the work of the church. We could not do it without you!
Thank you so much,
Revd Nathan Ward

SEND A CHEQUE
To give via cheque, please make the cheque payable to ‘St Margaret’s PCC’ and either give it via an envelope at a Sunday service or post it to St Margaret’s Church, High Street, Rainham, Kent. ME8 8AN.
PAYROLL GIVING VIA YOUR EMPLOYER
Many employers offer Payroll Giving which allows you to give directly to St Margaret’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.
EMPLOYER MATCHED GIVING
Many employers offer matched giving schemes. In most cases, the company will match your donation pound-for-pound up to a specific amount; a handful of organisations will even double your gift. You can download a list here of companies that we understand currently match gifts donated by their employees. This list is not definitive, and many more companies may also offer this option.
If your employer is not listed, please contact the Human Resources or Social Responsibility Office at your workplace to find out if they operate a matched giving scheme.
Some employers may not match giving for religious purposes, though most will match gifts for our heritage work. If you require advice on how to use matched giving, or need help allocating your giving for match giving purposes, please contact the church office.
If you pay Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax in the UK, we can claim back 25p on every £1 you donate through the Gift Aid scheme. To permit us to do this, please complete this Gift Aid Declaration.
If you pay tax above the basic rate, you can personally claim the difference between the rate you pay and basic rate on your donation (25%). You can do this either through your self-assessment tax return, or by asking HMRC to amend your tax code.
Note: Please do not fill in a Gift Aid declaration if you give via a pre-tax Payroll Giving scheme as you are giving ‘pre-tax’, and thus we cannot claim tax back on the gift.
