In July 2009, General Synod enthusiastically commended the ‘Giving for Life’ report. This was the first time it has held a significant debate on issues of giving and generosity since 2000. General Synod’s resolution:
- set giving within the context of discipleship and mission
- encouraged church members to set the target of giving 5% of their income to and through the church, and a further 5% to other organizations that help build God’s kingdom
- commended the initiative for prayerful discussion and action by parishes.

Donating through Gift Aid means charities and community amateur sports clubs (CASCs) can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give. It won’t cost you any extra.
The minimum you need to do is make a Gift Aid declaration for the charity to claim. You usually do this by filling in a form.
