A mark of our generosity
10 Jun 2015
The generosity of our staff has led to the award of a Payroll Giving Quality Mark Bronze Award
Funded by the Government and administered and promoted by the Institute of Fundraising, the Quality Mark recognises employers and employees who are making a difference together through Workplace Giving. The Bronze Award is given to organisations where 1% of employees are participating in a payroll giving scheme.
The University’s Workplace Giving Scheme had a very successful relaunch in October 2014 and in the last ten months staff donors have increased by over 200% and donations by nearly 120%. Over £9,800 was generously donated in May alone which puts our staff community’s annual donations on target for £117,000 to their favourite causes.
Dr Julian Skyrme, Director of Social Responsibility, said “It is fantastic to see the generosity of so many staff at the University recognised in this way. Workplace Giving allows colleagues to make a difference with regular or one-off donations that give the full taxable amount, without administration costs for the charities.”
