Payroll Giving Scheme

Give as you earn

Our Payroll Giving Scheme enables you to donate to your favourite charity on a regular or one-off basis by automatic deductions from your monthly pay. 

A monthly gift of £5 from your take-home pay to your chosen charity will be automatically boosted to £6.25 for a 20% rate tax payer and £8.33 for a 40% rate tax payer.  This means your charity receives your donation, but also the amount that you’d normally pay in tax at no extra cost to you.  Giving this way helps your charity receive regular financial support and helps smaller charities in particular, as many do not have the resource to claim back Gift Aid.  

Donate now via your pay using our Payroll Giving link
