Frequently Asked Questions


A.

There is no direct cost to you. To cover some of our costs, we deduct a small amount from the gift and Gift Aid we receive from supporters, which also helps us to develop and grow Christian generosity and the impact it has. For more information, you can read more about our Partner Account fees.


A.

Supporters can make donations by Direct Debit or by debit or credit card and cheque. Supporters can also make donations from the balance in their Stewardship Giving Account


A.

Supporters from outside the UK can arrange donations on your church or charity profile page, but unless they pay UK tax, their giving will not be eligible for Gift Aid.


A.

Donations will build up in your Stewardship Account and then, in most instances, be paid to you once a month as a grant. Our grants can also be made weekly and, should you require funds in an emergency, you can request a withdrawal in-between your normal payment intervals.

Whenever we make a payment to you, we send a communication so you can access your account online to see details of the payment and the donations included.
