Gift Aid donors
Any person who Gift Aid to the Friends of St Mary’s Church Charity permits the treasurer to submit their name and address to HMRC to support the Gift Aid claims from the Charity, as is normal practice.
- This information is not held on this internet server but in a password protected spreadsheet on the Treasurer’s PC, which in turn is protected by a multi-layered malware suite.
- Any donor information is NOT shared with any other of the Charity’s people except that donors names are available to the Charity Trustees, in confidence, solely for the purpose of not requesting further funds.
- Any bank statements used for audit purposes have the donor reference and bank details anonymised.
