Payroll Giving - it adds up to more for everyone

Payroll Giving is a unique way to give to charity. When you donate money to a cause in the normal way you are giving out of your taxed income. When you choose Payroll Giving your donation is taken from your pay before tax is deducted. Each 5.00 you give will only cost you 3.90, and if you are a higher rate tax payer it will only cost you 3.00. Simply put, your chosen charity gets a bigger donation, which is what we all want.

It has been around for a while, but this year is special. Firstly the government has removed the upper limit for donations. Even better, until April 2004 the Government will 'top up' every Payroll Giving donation by an extra 10%, making it a very effective donation indeed.

A good feeling every payday

Apart from the knowledge that you have given a great deal financially to your chosen charity or charities, Payroll Giving is extremely simple to use. Once your donation is set up, you don't have to do any more. Each week or month, as regular as clockwork, your charity will benefit.

For more information about the scheme and how to get involved, have a browse through the Finance Office website
or contact the Payroll Office on extension 2401.
