Charity Form Processing

CHY 3 Policy

Christ Church Cathedral is a registered charity and receives donations via electronic bank transfer and via a weekly donation “envelope” scheme. Where donors have contributed €250 or greater in one year, the cathedral may be eligible to receive an income tax refund on their donation.

Donors who have donated more than €250 in one year are asked to complete a CHY3 form which is an enduring certificate confirming their consent for donation of income tax relief to the Cathedral.


  1. Accounts team identifies all donors who have donated €250 or more and informs Volunteer.
  2. Volunteer maintains spreadsheet with list of donors per year.
  3. Volunteer prepares CHY 3 forms and forwards by email to Office Manager for posting.
  4. Donors are informed of the reasons we need their data and are asked to sign a form to acknowledge this.
  5. Returned, signed CHY 3 forms are scanned to a secure site in Sharepoint which only Office Manager and CEO can access.
  6. Volunteer prepares a list of donors for accounts team.
  7. Accounts team upload to revenue to make the claim.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
