GIFT AID DECLARATION
I have entered my name and address on the reverse of this declaration
and I want all membership fees and donations that I pay to CLC from the
date of this declaration until I notify CLC otherwise to be treated as Gift
Aid donations to the Christian Life Community in England and Wales,
Reg. Charity No. 1056891
OR I am not eligible for Gift Aid contributions
[PLEASE TICK
IF APPROPRIATE]
Signed ………………………………………………...…………………… date ………………...…………..
Notes:
1.
Notify CLC of any change to your name and address in the future.
2.
You must pay tax (income tax, tax on savings or capital gains tax) each
year at least equal to the tax which CLC (and all other charities to which
you make Gift Aid donations) reclaims on your donations in a tax year
(25p for each £1 you give, from April 2011).
3.
If in future your circumstances change so that you no longer pay enough
tax please tell CLC that you wish to end your declaration. You can do this
at any time for any reason.
4.
If you pay tax at the higher rate you can claim further tax relief from the
Inland Revenue on your Self Assessment Tax Return.
5.
Please contact the CLC Treasurer if you have any questions via the CLC
Office, 114 Mount Street, LONDON, W1K 3AH or email:

WHY BECOME A MEMBER?
HOW DO I PAY?
For you:
Members receive FOCUS, our
monthly newsletter, and detailed
notification of CLC events, as well as
discounts on CLC events and on some
literature.
If you are not near an existing
community, we will put you in touch with
any new members from your area and
give as much help as we can to enable a
new group to start.
The easiest way, for you and for
CLC, is to pay by Banker’s Order using
the form opposite. You can arrange for
payments to be made monthly or once a
year, whatever suits you.
Or, you can send a cheque,
made out to ‘CLC’, to cover your fees for
the remainder of this year and we will
send you a reminder at the beginning of
each calendar year.
If you do not have a bank
account, you may be able to arrange
payment through the contact person of
your local CLC.
TO MAKE IT ALL HAPPEN…
Please complete and return the whole form to: CLC, 114 Mount Street, London, W1K 3AH
For CLC:
By paying a membership fee you
help the work of CLC to continue. At
present we have the services of a Jesuit
priest as our National Chaplain, thanks
to the generosity of the Jesuits, but all
other work — including that of producing
the newsletter — is done on a voluntary
basis. To ensure that no-one is out of
pocket we pay all expenses.
So membership fees enable us to
foster growth in CLC at both local and
national levels, to organise regular CLC
events and to bring CLC to others.
FREE MONEY
CLC is a Registered Charity so
you can declare your membership fees
as Gift Aid donations—if you pay
income tax and if your membership fee
is £2 per month or more. This gives
CLC extra money from the taxman at no
further cost to yourself. (And actually
saves you money if you pay any tax at
the 40% rate!)

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Members are asked to help finance the activities of the national community. When
deciding how much to pay, they are invited to reflect upon the importance of CLC in
their life and to take their financial circumstances into account. Therefore the fee
structure is flexible, but it is recognised that this must be proportional to the person’s
means and to the development of each member’s understanding and acceptance of
CLC as a way of life and as a national and international community.

of their first full calendar year.
