Diocese of Manchester

Our Gift Aid Lite scheme offers far more than just a Gift Aid claiming service. As payment habits become increasingly cashless, it's vital that our churches recognise this and embrace the opportunities afforded by giving digitally.

Information on digital giving and fundraising can be found in our detailed guide below. Topics covered include:

  • Direct debits
  • Donate Now buttons on your website
  • Contactless and Chip and PIN donations
  • Fundraising via social media and shopping

Support and training

We also share information and promote peer support via our social media pages on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as well as a Facebook group focusing on Giving, Fundraising and Finance.

We're also involved in the diocese's wider Digital Support Group on Facebook.

Please see the Social Media Links section below.

Members of the Gift Aid Lite scheme can access lots of training resources to help them receive donations and raise funds. These are both written guides (see the Gift Aid Lite User Guides section below) as well as video tutorials which can be accessed on our Gift Aid Lite YouTube channel.
