THREE REASONS TO OFFER PAYROLL GIVING

There are many benefits to offering a payroll giving scheme, not just for the charity beneficiaries but also for organisations offering it and the employees donating through it. Here are just three benefits, taken from our video What is Payroll Giving? 

1. IT HELPS CHARITIES PLAN THEIR EXPENDITURE

Payroll giving provides a regular income stream and a simpler administrative process.

“It’s a regular income, it’s something we don’t have to claim gift aid on, and it already includes the tax people are paying. That is much less administration for us as an organisation.”
Mervi Slade – Save the Children

2. IT HELPS EMPLOYEES GIVE TO CAUSES CLOSE TO THEIR HEARTS

Payroll giving provides them with an easy way to donate.

“Payroll giving’s really flexible so you can give however much you want to the charity of your choice, and it’s really nice because you can split the money between a few charities or give it all to one.”
Ankita Patel, ASOS

3. IT COMPLEMENTS ORGANISATIONS' CSR STRATEGIES AND IMPROVES EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT

“We have a big global CSR policy and Give As You Earn fits in really nicely with that, and so as a whole it just completes one big CSR package for us, I think without it, it wouldn’t be as complete.”
Jo Harrison, Expedia

 

As Cressida Dimmock from ASOS states “It’s a ‘no brainer’ really, it’s a win win for everyone.” 

SO WHY NOT GET INVOLVED?
