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. Click here for a list of companies here 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.
Payroll Giving via Your Employer
Many employers offer Payroll Giving which allows you to give directly to St Michael'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.
Charitable Aid Agencies
You may wish to give to St Michael's via a charitable aid agency such as Stewardship, Just Giving, CAF, Charities Trust, or Charitable Giving. These agencies are useful for those who give to multiple charities and wish to have their giving recorded in one place or for those who wish to give anonymously. Some agencies such as CAF American Donor Fund also offer a more tax-efficient method of giving for US taxpayers.

Where Our Money Goes
Our parish does not receive any funding outside of what we raise through standing orders and donations from our parishioners and friends of the church. We try to raise £250,000 each year (approximately £5,000 each week) for non-project related funding. Approximately half of this goes towards the general day to day upkeep of the church and church staff, and the rest goes towards the Diocese of London Common Fund to support churches that have insufficient funds to support themselves but are greatly needed in the communities that they serve.
Thank you for your support!
