Payroll Giving

Payroll Giving is a simple, tax-efficient scheme which allows employees to donate to any UK registered charity of their choice directly from their salary, or occupational pension, before tax.

Making a donation through Payroll Giving costs less because it's tax free. A monthly gift of £10 could cost as little as £6.00 (based on a higher-rate tax payer). While it costs the donor less, we receive your gift with the tax included, courtesy of the tax man.
