Traditional priests work
hard, not least because there are so few of them. Their apostolates often cost
them much personal sacrifice and bring little material reward. Please consider
As HMRC has granted the TPST charitable status for tax purposes (ref no XR87762), it enjoys the same privileges as a registered charity:
Gift aid If you
are a taxpayer, please consider gift-aiding your donation. Completing a gift aid
takes so little time but gives the trust
so much extra help. The gift aid we have claimed so far, up to April 2019, comes
to just under £3,400. The tax year 11-12 saw the rate drop from 28p to 25p per
£1, but it is still a considerable asset, especially to smaller charities.
Self-assessment tax return refunds
You can donate any refund you are entitled to by entering the code
FAS32VG in the relevant box on your tax return. The refund may be gift-aided and
also donated anonymously.
Legacies A bequest to
the TPST can reduce the value of your estate for inheritance tax purposes as
long as the money passes directly into our account (it will be paid gross) and
your will places no restrictions on its use.
If you wish simply to
write a cheque, or perhaps set up a standing order, see here.
All donations will be acknowledged.
