Ways to encourage regular giving

Regular giving is a valuable way to build up your charitable giving over time. In the same way that you plan your monthly budget, you can plan your regular giving. There are a few ways that you can set up regular giving.

Parish Giving Scheme

Parish Giving Scheme is a national independent charity which supports churches with building generosity by offering a secure and simple way of giving on a regular basis. Register your parish to join PGS – use the links below to access information and resources:
Single parish form and Multiple Parish form (NB please email your completed form, and include a copy of a paying in slip or bank statement to verify your bank details, to your Giving Advisor – contacts details can be found below.)
Once you are live:
How PGS works, leaflet for your congregation or church members
PGS Gift Form 
Heritage and community giving resources
Make it easy for people in your community to support the church, by asking them to give online.

Online giving allows you to ask for support through an online platform or a mobile app and facilitates those who are donating to give through their online banking account. You can easily track your campaign's success and provide donors with emails on how their gifts are being used.

Friends’ Schemes
If you have a group of people who are keen on the history of the church, and are good at hosting fundraising events, a Friends’ Scheme is a great way to raise funds, have fun and create community spirit. Friends’ Schemes are usually a separate registered charity, so check out our template Terms of Reference below to make sure that the PCC and Friends can work together for the best outcome for your church.
