Payroll giving

Payroll Giving is a process that allows staff to make charitable donations on a regular basis through their employer’s payroll, and receive an immediate one third tax credit for the donation. Payroll Giving is a voluntary process - employers have no obligation to offer Payroll Giving, and staff have no obligation to participate
