Regular Giving to Christ Church Cathedral
We are grateful to those who choose to give on a regular basis to support the cathedral’s ministry. Regular giving is handled in two ways:
- Weekly Contribution Envelopes For those who attend regularly and wish to give on a weekly basis, Weekly Contribution Envelopes are available. If you wish to participate please contact Desmond Campbell on firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Donating through a Standing Order Some people prefer the convenience of setting up a standing order via online banking and our congregants are more than welcome to do so. Christ Church Cathedral’s bank details are as follows:
|Bank Name||Bank of Ireland, College Green, Dublin 2|
|Country Situated||Republic of Ireland|
When setting up your standing order initially, please return this form to Head of Finance, Deirdre Cantwell, at email@example.com.
Be assured that details of financial contributions are held confidentially by the Head of Finance and are not shared with anyone else.
Main Benefits and Details of the Scheme
While there is no stated minimum for regular giving, Irish taxpayers who donate a minimum of €250 in a calendar year enable Christ Church Cathedral to claim a tax refund. To qualify for this tax rebate the giver must be registered for PAYE or be Self Assessed for tax purposes. For those who qualify, your donation is grossed up at the specified rate (currently 31%) which means that every €100 given is worth €145 to the Cathedral. Tax must have been paid in the appropriate Tax Year equal to or exceeding the tax being reclaimed by the Cathedral.
Receipts will be issued annually and you will be asked to complete and sign a CHY (charity) certificate confirming the donations and the tax refund due to the Cathedral. No action is necessary in this regard on your own personal Tax Return.
Through this scheme, we aim to get the most out of any donations our congregants make towards Christ Church Cathedral. However smaller contributions are very welcome, as every little helps!
