Why Give Money For These Causes

Charitable Giving

Each year the church gives 10% of the gross euro income from the General account and the Shop account to charities selected by the church council. The aim is to support local charities on the island and at least one further afield. In 2019 this was USPG and in 2020 we chose a UNICEF programme to provide clean water, healthcare and education in the Yemen to help with the Covid-19 pandemic.

Local Charities in 2020

Happy2Help, Noah’s Ark and the Association of San Juan. We also provide food and essential items to two Orders of Nuns: one in Vilaflor, who distribute the items to poor and needy families and the other, in Santiago del Teide who run a care home for the elderly and also distribute to the poor and needy.


As the church was closed from the middle of March until October and the number of tourists has been very limited, the council decided to support the toy appeal held annually in Los Gigantes church with an extra payment to buy toys for the appeal.

Normally we also support the Bishop of Europe’s Lent and Advent appeals but this year due to restricted services and income felt unable to support these this year.

The nuns of Santiago del Teide have a care home for the elderly and also distribute food to the needy.

We have supported them for many years.
