Payroll giving is an easy, tax-free way for you to make a regular donation straight from your salary. The donation is taken before pay as you earn tax is calculated so you pay less and the tax man pays more. A gift of £10 per month only costs £8 if you pay the basic rate of tax or only £6 if you pay the higher rate of tax.

How does it benefit us?

Charity payroll donations provide regular and reliable income to fund our long-term projects working with disadvantaged children and young people.

How will it benefit your company?

Payroll giving is quick and easy to set up. It is a great way for your company to demonstrate commitment to charities that employees care about. It creates a good morale among staff by providing an easy and efficient way to give to charity.
