The sisters and future brothers need all the support they can get if they are going to maintain, against the trend, the steady growth in numbers, but also, if they are going to achieve their dream of being an instrument in Mary’s hands, contributing to the new evangelisation and the strengthening of faith in England and beyond.

Hence donations can be made to their present project of trying to purchase their first home in Great Walsingham.

On the other hand you can get involved by joining the team of volunteers if you live nearby, offer IT assistance (we always need help in this area, especially if you are a Mac expert) and just offer any talents you wish to share with the community.

How can you help?

There are different ways in which you could channel your donations to the community. Hopefully one of them will suit your present circumstances. It does not matter how much or how little you can give, the sisters will be very grateful for your help and in gratitude, promise to keep their donors names in their prayers.

1. Make a one-time gift

2. Make an ongoing contribution by standing order.

3. How to make your gift tax-effective

There are a number of different ways to benefit from tax relief, including:

Gift Aid:

Charities can claim back the tax paid on voluntary   donations made by taxpayers. At the present basic rate of 20%, a £10 note is worth £12.50 when you gift aid it.Higher Rate taxpayers can claim back 25% on the donation made, and by 37.5% if in the very top bracket of taxation. 

Matching Gifts:

Some businesses offer to match the charitable contributions made by their employees.

Payroll Giving:

Some employers administer a scheme in which employees can donate straight from their gross salary and get immediate tax relief.

Share Giving:

Donors can get substantial relief on their income tax bill when making donations of shares.

Business donations: corporation tax relief

Is available for businesses by deducting the gift from its profits. The company does not need to complete a gift Aid declaration.

4. Remembering the Community in Your Will

A legacy is a traditional  form of giving to a charity. It is a way of thanking God for the gifts we have received during our lifetime.  Once family and loved ones have been provided for, a donation  can be made to a charity.

Many people pay Inheritance Tax on their estate. Gifts to a charity in a will are exempt from IHT. Also gifts of up to £3,000 annually are exempt during your lifetime.
