Payroll Giving

An easy, tax-free way to support children with life-threatening illnesses

What is Payroll Giving?

Payroll Giving is also known as Pay As You Earn (PAYE), it’s a simple way to donate to your charity of choice through your employer. Your donation is made via your monthly salary payments, and because it’s taken before tax, your payments go even further.

For instance, if you’re a standard rate taxpayer and you made a regular donation of £10 to us, you’d only be paying out £8. 

What are the benefits?

  • It’s easy: Once you’re set up the donation is automatically taken from your salary
  • It’s flexible: You’re not tied in to any length of payment and you can stop anytime by talking to your payroll team. If you retire or move jobs your payment will automatically end.
  • It helps us plan for the future: Regular gifts like Payroll Giving are essential to help us plan for the future. Having regular, reliable income means we’re able to commit to long term plans. Your donation could be supporting projects such as: XXXXX.

Information for employers

Payroll Giving is a great way to show commitment to your employees by supporting great causes your staff care about. It gives a real boost to your Corporate Social Responsibility profile, and supporting a local charity is a great way to connect to the local community.


You’ll need to set yourself up with a Payroll Giving agency, they’ll handle the transaction between employer and charity on your behalf.

The agency may charge an admin fee, which you can choose to cover or it can be taken from the employee’s donation.

You can find out full details on setting up PAYE schemes on GOV.UK.
