Charitable Giving Policy

THE PARISH CHURCH OF ST MARY, WEXHAM

 

CHARITABLE GIVING POLICY                                    

 

 

It is good practice and in keeping with biblical principles that we tithe 10% of our regular unrestricted income* and, since we encourage church members to take up Planned Christian Giving in a systematic and planned way, it is right that as a corporate body, St Mary’s should do the same.

 

Recognising that administration costs reduce the value of every donation, we limit our support to between 8 and 10 charities each year. The choice of our charities will be determined according to the following principles:

 

 

 

 

*Weekly collections

   DGS income (including tax back)

   Fund raising profit

   Use of Hall Donations

   Magazine profit

   Interest on Current account. 

   Occasional Offices fee income
