Make a one-off donation to charity at bonus time

If you've recently been awarded a bonus payment, why not share part or all of it with the charities you love? You don't have to be making a regular donation and because your company already has CAF Give As You Earn in place - the process remains simple.

If you're already signed up to your company scheme

Simply complete your form in the usual way and select 'one-off donation'.

If you haven't joined your company scheme yet

Ask your HR manager how to sign up so that you can make a donation.
