Title: How the Parish Giving Scheme Can Work for You


1
How the Parish Giving Scheme Can Work for You
2
A GIVING SCHEME THAT BENEFITS THE PARISH
  • Developed in 2008 by the Diocese of Gloucester.
  • Winchester and Chichester joined PGS in
    2012/2013.
  • Exeter came on board and piloted the scheme in 7
    parishes.
  • This was very successful
  • One parish recorded giving increased by one
    third.
  • There is NO cost to the parish!

3
A GIVING SCHEME THAT BENEFITS THE PARISH
  • Dioceses of Liverpool, Chelmsford and Guildford
    have recently joined. Portsmouth and Truro
    joining later this year.
  • Gloucester gifted the Parish Giving Scheme to
    the National Church in 2014, and a joint venture
    charitable company has now been established.

Giving to rise in line with inflation annually

How the PGS can help

(RPI) 2014 81.60 20.40 Gift Aid 102.00
tax efficient gift a month Extra 302.40 a year
8
I wish to support my parish in the future by
agreeing to an annual inflationary increase on
my gift. I understand that the new amount will
be communicated to me by letter 30 days prior to
the gift donation date. I have the right to opt
out of this arrangement at any point in the
future by communicating my wishes by letter,
email or phone to the Parish Giving scheme.
Please tick Yes
9
When you signed up to donate through the Parish
Giving Scheme (PGS) you indicated that you wished
to support your parish more effectively by
increasing your gift annually in line with
inflation. The PGS uses Retail Price Index
(RPI) for the last available January as its
inflation rate. RPI in January 2014 was 2.2,
therefore if you are still in agreement with this
commitment from 1 December 2014 your donation
will increase from 100 to 102.20 If you are
still happy with this there is no need for you to
take any further action. Your parish will receive
your increased gift as normal, 10 days after its
received by us. If you would like to review the
level of your giving or you wish to change this
instruction, please contact us by email,
telephone or post (see details below).

  • Static giving is reduced
  • The level of giving is addressed
  • The profile of planned giving is increased
  • A professional and efficient service is provided

14
Some figures
  • In 2014 over 6.6m was raised through the PGS
    (including 1.2m in Gift Aid)
  • The amount raised in 2014 was roughly double the
    amount raised in 2013, which in turn was also
    double that raised in 2012.
  • In March 2015 there were 7,800 donors from six
    dioceses. The amount sent to parishes in January
    was 700,000 (which included 130,000 in Gift
    Aid)
  • Monthly Gift Aid is claimed for over 90 of
    donors  
  • From inflated monthly gifts alone a 71,000
    increase is expected in 2014

15
Great news for your community
  • With an improved cash flow situation, your parish
    will be able to plan for growth and develop its
    ministry.

16
STEWARDSHIP REGULAR CAMPAIGN
The Parish Giving Scheme is more likely to work
for you if the launch is well timed and forms
part of a giving review.
Creating your own thank you letter is important
too.
17
HELP IS ON HAND
  • Six Steps of Christian Giving Workshop
  • Talk during a service
  • Co-ordinated roll out of Parish Giving Scheme
  • Legacies workshop/talk in sermon
  • PCC stewardship planning meetings
  • Sacrificial Giving mornings

Support is also provided in producing publicity
for these events.

How Do we join?
  • 1. Complete and return the parish registration
    form which can be obtained from your Mission
    Resources Adviser, Katie Roscorla.
  •  2. When your form has been processed your
    parish will be given a unique code. This needs
    to be entered on the donor Gift Form.
  • 3. Liaise with Katie to decide which information
    you would like to include in your bespoke donor
    packs. Each pack can include a gift card to be
    placed in the offertory plate. You can also work
    with Katie to plan your launch. A variety of
    stewardship support plans are available.
