Four ways to give

CAF Give As You Earn is highly flexible payroll giving scheme, offering employees four ways to give:

1. Direct donation

Employees' payments go straight to their chosen charity each payroll.

2. CAF Charity Account

An account especially for giving to charity, enabling staff to hold their funds so they always have money set aside to donate. This gives employees flexibility, allowing them to decide when they want to give, and the facility to top up their account from other sources whenever they wish.

3. CAF Staff Charity Fund

An account enabling staff to pool their donations as a group. This is a great way to raise money for the causes that you and your staff care about.

4. CAF Charitable Trust

Employees can set up their own charitable trust without having to appoint trustees or pay legal fees. This is the best way for them to manage their long-term giving.
