Charitable Donation Scheme for taxpayers in Ireland
The Charitable Donation Scheme operated by the Revenue Commissioners is a scheme that allows charities to reclaim tax on donations over €250 made by a taxpayer in Ireland, which means your donations over €250 will be worth more to us at no extra cost to you. If you sign up for this Scheme we can claim back a refund of tax paid on your donation by you.
Moneys recovered from Revenue through this scheme form a vital part of our annual income. In the 2019 tax year we reclaimed nearly €15,500.00 from Revenue.
Joining the scheme is very simple and straightforward, requiring little effort on your part. All you have to do is:
- be a PAYE or Self-Assessed income tax payer within this State
- download and sign a very short CHY3 Certificate
- make your future donations either by standing order or direct debit through your Bank or by cash/cheque in the offertory basket, using envelopes that we supply.
- return your completed forms to the parish office
If you are in a position to join the Scheme, we would be very grateful.
Planned giving for non-Ireland taxpayers
If you are not an income tax payer you can still join our planned giving scheme using standing orders, direct debits or envelopes.
