Gift Aid

Let the Taxman contribute towards your contribution to the Church.

The Government introduced a revised Gift Aid Scheme in April 2000 allowing any Taxpayer to make Charitable contributions by either Bankers Order, cheque or cash. This allows us to claim back the tax element at the basic rate of (22%) on any contributions you make to the Church at the Offertory, 2nd and special collections. If you would like details, please e-mail the Parish and one of our Gift-Aid Officers will be pleased to provide you with details.


200 Club

Members contribute £12 a year and have the chance of winning a £50 prize each month or a £100 prize twice a year. The money goes towards defined projects in the parish. Contact Liz Owen.


Fund-Raising

Our main fund raising requirement is for Building Maintenance, see below. To meet this debt we hold regular fund-raising social events and we also look for outright gifts and bequests.

Fund raisers are required. Do you have any experience or expertise or enthusiasm? If so, please contact Michael Maher.

Gifts and Legacies

Please remember your Church in your Will? Your Catholic Church in Farnham has benefited from legacies over many years-­- for example:

  • The generous bequests from the Borelli family funded the original altar and improvements in the Church,
  • Half of the cost of the Parish Centre came from the substantial legacy from the Wright Family.

In recent years we have received some legacies which have gone to benefit the current generation of St Joan's parishioners. Looking to the future, we ask that you consider making provision in your will,to aid future generations of worshipers at St Joan's. Click here for more details

Here is an example of a Typical Wording of a Codicil to an existing will.
