What difference will your gift make?

Nicholas Prozzillo
Director of Music

We are a small, city centre parish church, with big ambitions for our impact and a strong history of success. Without the benefit of a large endowment, we are dependent on the generosity of those who share our aspirations to deliver transformational musical opportunities for the people of our city. Any gift – however large or small – makes a critical contribution to our ability to achieve these.

A new organ and improved facilities for the use of young people and their teachers will set the conditions for providing access to the best musical education and experiences, irrespective of background.

The are many ways to donate to the future of St Giles’

You may like to support Music at St Giles’ in general, subscribe to the new organ fund, contribute to ‘Sponsor a Pipe‘ or help us with enhancements to the building.

Any donation, large or small will be welcomed.

Major Gifts

Standard and Higher Tax Rate Gift Aid

If you are a UK taxpayer, every £1 you give is worth £1.25 If you are a higher rate taxpayer you can claim a personal tax benefit, which means for every £1 you give, you can reclaim 25p.  If you are a top rate tax payer you can reclaim 31p.

You can calculate the amount (above is an example) using this web-based tool

To enable us to reclaim the tax and increase the value of your gift you need to download and complete the Gift Aid Declaration.

Regular Giving:
If you have a bank account, a standing order is the best way to give regularly to St Giles’.

You don’t have to remember to pay each month, and it helps us to plan our budget. You decide how much you want to give, and when you want to give it. This is by far the most efficient way of regular giving and it is easy to start. Standing order form Download
