Payroll Giving

The Payroll Giving scheme enables employees/pensioners to make tax efficient donations from their pre-tax pay/pension to any UK registered charity.

Benefits of running a scheme:

• Excellent way to support employees wishing to make tax-efficient donations

• Enhances a company’s social responsibility profile and provides good PR opportunities

• Boosts staff morale and aids both staff retention and recruitment

• Can influence business to business relationships

• Demonstrate investment in local community

• Opportunity to achieve a Payroll Giving Quality Mark and a National Payroll Giving Excellence Award


  Set up a scheme

To set up a Payroll Giving scheme you will need to complete and return our Payroll Giving Form. You will find everything you need including, important information, the charges involved and how to operate the scheme in our Payroll Giving Pack which is available in Downloads.

  Promote the scheme

You can promote the scheme yourselves as an employer or you could engage the services of a Professional Fundraising Organisation (PFO).


PFO’s are experienced promotional organisations. They make no charge to the employers they work with and are funded by the charities they represent to promote the Payroll Giving scheme.


Here’s a list of PFOs you could use:

• Bell Fundraising

• Hands on Payroll Giving

• Payroll Giving in Action

• StC Payroll Giving

• The Payroll Giving Team


If you wish to promote your scheme yourselves and would like some promotional materials, have a look at our Downloads.

  Employer Reporting

Our reporting service will provide you with in-depth details about your company’s Payroll Giving scheme. You will be able to see the total donations, how many donors you have and how close you are to achieving the next Payroll Giving Quality Mark level.


Your figures will be available online at any time and will help to give you some insight in to how your employees are giving and which charities they support the most strongly. Which could then in turn help you to build campaigns around your employees to increase participation.
