What is a Donation ? and How can I make it to EGN Ministries?
A donation is a gift for charity, humanitarian aid, or to benefit a cause. A donation may take various forms, including money, alms, services, or goods (For eg : car, bike, cloths, Jewels, assets). In EGN our church members make online payments as regular offerings and tithe to the church. During regular Church services and church events church offerings when taken will also be considered as a donation. All money and any related contributions are collected and valued and deposited in the charity account. Online donations can be made to the EGNM Bank Account via online bank transfer. Donations can also be made on the donation page on our website.
What is Gift aid?
Gift Aid is a government scheme that allows charities to reclaim the tax that you have already paid on your donations through income tax or capital gains tax. All donations (excluding those made through the Charities Aid Foundation and payroll giving), made in the last four years are eligible for the scheme – including regular gifts such as standing orders and direct debits.
Do I need to make a declaration every time I donate?
No. You just need to fill out a Gift Aid declaration and date it – then it will cover donations you have already made to EGN Ministries and any donations you make in the future. There is no extra paperwork – we deal with the tax office to reclaim the tax. All we need is your form.
Can I contact you if I have further questions?
Sure you can. If you have any further questions – or if your circumstances change you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Can I get a refund on my donation?
At EGN Ministries, we work hard to ensure you have a trouble-free journey when making a donation and we want to make it as smooth as possible. Donations made to EGNM at any cost will not be refunded, but it does adhere to the circumstances specified to The Charities Act 2011 which can be found here.
However, there may be an occasion where you might need to discuss your donation or donation related queries. Please send your request to email@example.com to get any clarification. Your concerns are important to us and will be treated fairly.
