A fund for your employees giving

Our Staff Charity Fund lets your employees pool their CAF Give As You Earn donations in one pot. They can then make a bigger collective donation to a charity of their choice.

To open a fund your company needs to be part of our CAF Give As You Earn scheme. The fund is free to set up as our fees (1.5%) are taken from the donations paid into it. Or you can choose to show support for your employees’ commitment to charity by paying the fees.

How it works

1. Sign up employees

Simply ask staff if they want to contribute to the fund. Your payroll team will then need to keep a track of who wants to take part and how much they want to give.

2. Take contributions

You take the money from your employees pay and send us one lump sum. We then put this into your Staff Charity Fund.

3. Give from the fund

Nominate staff representatives to manage the fund and make donations from it. We then verify the chosen charities and send them the money.
