Invitation to Diocesan Gift Aid AGM
Many parish and school Organisers are now using the on-line GiftWise recording system, which is proving highly beneficial to everyone. A second GiftWise Seminar will be at held on the same day at 12 noon – aimed at new and existing users. Not to be missed, a short system overview presentation will be followed by a full Q & A session to address all levels of use.
The AGM helps to keep organisers updated on all Gift Aid matters – this year it includes a special item to highlight opportunities to increase School Governor’s Funds – so we hope that many of our schools will be represented. If your school could do with a boost of funds, come along and find out how Gift Aid helps! The hosts of the AGM, St Paul’s College, is a prime example of how Gift Aid helps fund major items – and primary schools can benefit enormously too. The Diocesan team is always ready to help!
This year a new Gift Aid Handbook will be available for everyone, including a specialised one for GiftWise users. The Handbooks will also be available on the Diocesan website.
Share in the actual experience of setting up a Parish Charity Fund. So, if you are thinking of starting one, come along and find out how it works!
And finally, a special ‘thank you’ buffet for all attendees will be a popular conclusion to the afternoon.
