Donate by 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.
Donations are made before income tax is deducted, so you get tax relief on your donation immediately and at your highest rate of tax. So, if you pay tax at the basic rate of 20% and authorise a monthly donation to Survival of £10, the actual cost to you is only £8.
Ask your employer or pension provider if they run a Payroll Giving Scheme. If they don’t, please visit the Geared for Giving website for ideas on how to invite them to start one.
Gift Matching Schemes
Many companies operate a matching gift policy for their employees. Corporations will often match your giving and in some cases even double it. To find out if your employer offers this scheme, please contact your Human Resources department.
