Support Us

There are a number of ways you can support the Scotland's Churches Trust:

Donations

Donations are this Trust's most important form of income. They are gratefully received, however large or small.

Under the Gift Aid scheme your completion of this form will enable the Trust to increase your donation by recovering tax you have paid in your donation at no additional cost to you.

Donations of Shares

If you donate shares to charity their market value is deducted from your taxable income and you have no capital gains tax to pay.

Legacy

Please kindly remember this Trust when making or altering your Will. As a general rule assets bequeathed (or gifted) to charities are exempted from capital gains tax and inheritance tax.

Other ways to support us

If you are accustomed to giving substantial sums to several charities you are probably aware of other tax-efficient methods such as giving through the Charities Aid Foundation, King's Hill, West Mailing, Kent ME19 4TA, or setting up a private charitable trust.

The Hon Treasurer will be pleased to explain any points not clear to you from these brief notes, please feel free to contact us.
