The Parish Giving Scheme (PGS) is a Direct Debit system that provides a professional, effective donation management system to help parishes fund their mission and ministry. It reduces the burden of work on parish volunteers and provides a professional service to our donors.
How does it work?
Donations made through this scheme use a Direct Debit. This can be made on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis. Each donation is restricted to a parish church chosen by the donor and cannot be used elsewhere. The donation will be passed back to the parish of the donor's choosing by 10th of the month. Any eligible Gift Aid will be sent separately, once it has been received from HMRC. Another unique feature of the scheme is the option for the donor to commit in principle to increase their gift annually in line with inflation.
If this scheme becomes the principal funding method for your Church, you will have inflation-proofed your giving, maximized your cash flow and minimised your administration. This will free up your parish to focus on other important priorities.
