Funding Local Causes

Payroll giving

Payroll giving is one of the best ways as an employer you can help make a difference and give back to your local community. By coming together, with everyone giving a little, we can make a big difference to the lives of vulnerable people in Hertfordshire.
Every UK employer can start a payroll giving scheme. Simple to run and easy to set up, it provides charities with a regular income and gives employees a tax break on the donations they make. There are no admin costs to run the scheme; all donations are directed into your chosen fund.

Great for employers

Payroll giving is a great way to enhance charitable giving and corporate social responsibility with minimal cost and administration. This has been shown to have a very positive effect on employee engagement, and demonstrates that your company is committed to supporting its staff and the local community. With enough payroll givers, your business can create its own company payroll fund, tailored to support your areas of interest or concern, such as the geographical area around your business or causes chosen by you and your staff. Employees can even assist in making the final decisions about which local organisations receive funding by forming part of the decision-making panel.

Great for staff

People who receive a company or personal pension through PAYE can also use this method as a way to donate to charity. All payments are made directly through salary before tax is deducted, which means that donors get immediate tax relief on their donation, and at their highest rate of tax.
