St. Chad's Gifting for 2014/15

The charitable allocations remain the centre-point of giving through the church. In addition to other specific collections and events, St Chad’s Parish Centre also provides concessionary rates to charitable users worth approximately £7,000 per annum.

St Chad’s also works with Leeds Community Fund in the operation of
“The St Chad’s Fund” which makes grants of up to £1,500
to local projects. For further information about this
or the charitable allocation process
please contact Tim Ward or Beverly Leech Askey
of the St Chad’s Community Engagement Committee.

(for the Community Engagement Committee)

The policy of charitable giving approved by the PCC is as follows:-

•  Charities supported need not have an explicit Christian connection, though all should be carrying out the Christian mission enjoined in Matthew 25: 35-36

•  Local, national, & overseas charities are eligible for support, though no fixed proportion will be assigned to each category

•  Given the limited funds available, preference will be given to smaller (usually local) charities with a limited range of other support, so that our relatively small contribution will make a greater difference

•  Notwithstanding that, small contributions may be given to large Christian charities to indicate continuing support for their mission.



The PCC has endorsed the following allocations made by the Community Engagement Committee:-
