Clergy Support Trust walks alongside Anglican clergy and their families through a range of grants and services, from Emergency grants to help keep the rising cost-of-living at bay, to anxiety, bereavement and separation counselling.

Our support is confidential, impartial and we are completely independent of the Church. Last year, we supported over 2,700 households with £6.2m in grants. This includes over 1 in 5 of all serving Church of England and Church in Wales clergy.

We have been serving those who serve for almost 400 years - but we're only able to do so thanks to the wonderful support of our donors. Will you join our community of supporters?

How you can donate

Gift Aid

If you're a taxpayer, you can complete a Gift Aid Declaration, which boosts your donation by 25% at no extra cost to you. If you give online, you'll be prompted to complete a Gift Aid Form. If you're sending a cheque, please print and return this form.

Governors and Stewards

Stewards play a key ceremonial role in our annual Festival Service at St Paul's Cathedral, processing and accessing priority seating. They have been part of our history for centuries, and support our work with a donation of £75 per year.

Become a Steward

Governors are our ultimate governing body, electing our Trustees, standing for election themselves, attending our AGM and directing our mission. They hold us to account and advocate for clergy wellbeing. They make a one-off donation of £100, and remain Governors for life.

Gifts in Wills

Personal finances can be complicated, especially in these challenging times. Sometimes, it can be easier to pledge a gift after you've passed on than to make a donation today.

As well as caring for your loved ones, your Will is an opportunity to remember the service of clergy and their families.

Thanks to the generosity of those who leave gifts, we’re able to support clergy, their partners and their children, from training through to retirement.

A legacy gift - whether it's a fixed some, a percentage of your estate or a specific item - can have a lasting impact for generations to come.
