As a Christian organisation, we rely upon the generosity and commitment of our supporters to help us maintain our ministry. We are very grateful indeed to all our supporters, whether they give a one-off gift, or regularly, by Standing Order. Bank Standing Orders are a most efficient way of giving, as they help us to know what income we can expect, and therefore allow us to plan our work effectively.
Please also consider making a Gift Aid Declaration in relation to your gift. This is a tax-efficient way of increasing the value of your gift to our work, at no extra cost to you.
If you have any queries, please contact the trustees of The Stapleford Centre at email@example.com. A trustee will contact you as soon as possible.
Thank you very much for your support in giving.
The Gift Aid scheme enables us to claim back from the government the tax that you have paid on any gift(s) that you have given us. If you sign a Gift Aid Declaration form, we can claim back 25p of tax for every £1 you give during the current tax year and in subsequent years until you cancel the declaration. You only need to sign the form once; we will keep your Gift Aid Declaration on file and process any further donations as gift-aided.
Any size gift can be 'Gift Aided'. No minimum gift is required - you can give £10 or £1000. All gifts are treated equally by the Inland Revenue. Thus, a gift of £10 is worth £12.50 to us if you have signed a Gift Aid Declaration. Or £100 is worth £125 etc.

If you pay at least base rate tax (20%) on your income in a financial year (6th - 5th April) you are eligible to sign a Gift Aid Declaration.
If you have paid less than base rate (20%) tax in any given financial year, you may be able to back date your Gift Aid Declaration.
If you claim tax credits and want to use gift aid, you must inform HMRC, who will adjust the figures accordingly.

The trustees are an invited body of approximately 12 people who oversee the long-term strategic direction and governance of the Stapleford Centre. Their expertise is in many different areas, including law, finance and business as well as education. A trustee will normally serve for two terms (three years) and on election to the Board they must be in sympathy with our Statement of Faith, which is based on that of the Evangelical Alliance.
The Stapleford Centre's Ethos and Values Statement underpins everything that we do, and forms the basis for our projects, partnerships, working relationships and decision-making. Click here to read our Ethos and Values statement.
