The Parish Giving Scheme (PGS) is a multi-diocesan approach to serving parishes with a professional donation management and Gift Aid service. It automatically adds the Gift Aid uplift if appropriate, and then remits the gross amount to the local church. Uniquely, it has the capability automatically to increase the donation by inflation each year, if the donor agrees.
It reduces the burden of work on parish volunteers and provides a professional service to its donors. A quality launch alongside a stewardship review provides the opportunity for a step change in the level of giving.
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.
