Are you Eligible for Gift Aid?

If so, please download a Gift Aid form and enclose it with your cheque.

The terms and conditions of the Gift Aid Scheme state that to be eligible to Gift Aid you must meet the following criteria:

  • An individual must be a UK tax payer who must pay an amount of income tax and or capital gains tax at least equal to the tax that the Cathedral reclaims on your donations in the appropriate tax year (this is currently 25p for every £1.00).
  • Donations made by individual donors must be from their own money, an individual cannot make a donation under Gift Aid using someone else’s money.
  • Donors can only donate for themselves and their immediate family members only.

If you would like to donate regularly by setting up your own Standing Order direct to Leicester Cathedral then please download a Standing Order Form.

During lockdown we ask that you send the Standing Order form directly to your bank. This is because the Cathedral and its offices are closed at the current time. Thank you very much indeed.
