Donate

In the wider charitable sector, new forms of giving are growing fast. This is particularly true amongst younger givers, but many older givers give through digital giving portals and many individuals and organisations use sites like Give.net, JustGiving and Virgin Money Giving to receive donations. 

SumUp/Givealittle now provide a simple way for churches to set up online giving that is simple to set up and to use.  You can find out more about setting up online giving for your church using Sumup/Givealittle here or contact stephanie.rankin@blackburn.anglican.org

Giving online enables you to:

  • give without needing cash
  • give online without needing access to online banking - you only need a debit or credit card
  • If you are a taxpayer you can also make a gift aid declaration at the same time
  • give before or after an event if it wasn't convenient at the time

To give to any of the following funds, please click the appropriate 'Donate here' button.
