In addition to regular and one-off cash donations, there are a number of other ways you can support Church Urban Fund’s urgent work.
Make a gift in memoriam
Making a gift in memoriam is an enduring and meaningful way to celebrate the life of a loved one, while helping Church Urban Fund make a difference for the future. Traditionally, an in memoriam gift can be made in lieu of flowers at a funeral. In addition, if you have received an inheritance, any or all of it can be given to Church Urban Fund to honour the benefactor.
You can also link your special remembrance of a friend or family member to a particular group served by Church Urban Fund’s work – vulnerable communities, at-risk children and youth, or the isolated elderly – or to a specific geographical region.
Please contact us on 0207 898 1667 for more information.
Donating shares to Church Urban Fund is one of the most tax-effective ways to give money and help the vulnerable and disadvantaged. Please see our Donating Shares FAQs for more information.
Donate your tax rebate
If you file an annual self assessment, you can elect to donate all or part of your tax repayment to Church Urban Fund.
If you use HMRC’S Self Assessment Online service you will be able to complete the application online. Church Urban Fund’s registered charity code is KAE82NG. If you file your Self Assessment through the post you will need to fill in form SA100, which can be found in your tax return pack. You can also download form SA100 from the HMRC website.
Donate items of value
Jewellery, works of art, books, collectables, antiques and other items of value such as vehicles can be given or sold as donations, or bequeathed as legacies, and the tax on the income from sales can be reclaimed from HMRC. For more information, please read see the HMRC’s page, 'Tax efficient giving to charity: the basics'.
If you give land or property to Church Urban Fund, or sell them to us at less than their market value, you can claim Income Tax relief and lower your tax bill, as well as getting Capital Gains Tax relief.
A solicitor will be able to advise you on how to sell property, or transfer ownership. There is also information available on HMRC’s website in the 'Gifts to charity of land, buildings or shares by individuals' section and via their Charities Helpline on 0845 302 0203 (0800-1700, Monday to Friday).
Please contact us if you are considering donating a high-value item or any property.
