Please keep your Christmas cards

Churchtown Friend, Vanessa Wyse Jackson would like to have the front page of the Christmas cards you’re finished with please (ie the picture, not the personal messages). She makes beautiful recycled cards out of these. The intention is that they should be a fund-raiser for IQFA if they can be physically sold/ exchanged before Christmas next year.
We will make a plan in due course for getting the cards to Vanessa.
Meanwhile though please remember to put your cards aside for her whenever you’re doing your post-Christmas tidy-up. Thank you.

Increase your donation for free

Did you know that IQFA can claim back tax on your donated amount, if you donate at least €250.00 in a year? This increases your donation by about 45%. All donations over €250 and under €1,000,000 qualify!

You only need to complete one CHY 3 form (below) to cover all your donations over a year

N.B. Please put your name on the lodgement or transfer request to indicate who it is from, and also send an e-mail to davidk@acuvest.ie so we will have a record of the source of funds coming into the account.

Gift Aid in Northern Ireland

If you pay tax, Gift Aid is a scheme by which you can give a sum of money to charity and the charity can normally reclaim basic rate tax on your gift from HMRC. That increases the value of the gift you make to the charity. So for example, if you give £10 using Gift Aid that gift is worth £12.50 to the charity. You can give any amount, large or small, regular or one-off.
If you are a UK taxpayer, for every £1 you donate, IQFA will receive an additional 25p from HMRC. All you need to do is complete a Gift Aid Declaration. You only need to complete the Declaration once, as it will cover any future donations you make. There is no minimum amount you need to donate – the only requirement is that you are a UK taxpayer. It’s that simple.

Bequest

Leaving a bequest in your will can make a real difference to those less well off. Any legacy left to a charity is exempt from tax, so IQFA would receive 100% of any gift you leave.
Here are 3 ways you can help:

  1. When writing your will, you can remember to include IQFA. If you already have a will, you can amend it at any time to include a gift for IQFA. It’s easy.
  2. Donations of life insurance allow you to make a significant donation down the road by making modest contributions now. By purchasing a new life policy and naming IQFA as the beneficiary, the premiums paid will be recognised as a charitable gift and you will be eligible to receive tax benefits. Alternatively, by donating an existing policy, you will earn a current income tax deduction.
  3. As an alternative to leaving a bequest, you could ask that instead of flowers people make a donation to IQFA.

Giving a little helps a lot
