Give as you earn
Alternatively, if you are paid through the PAYE system, you may be able to give directly through your payroll. Payroll Giving is a scheme that enables employees to give to any UK charity straight from their gross salary (before tax is deducted), and to receive immediate tax relief of up to £4 for every £10 donated. The system is easy to opt in and out of, giving you full control over your giving. Contact your HR department to find out if your organisation is part of the Payroll Giving Scheme. If they aren't its simple and easy for organisations to join, and there are many benefits for them too.
