GIVE MORE FOR LESS THROUGH PAYROLL GIVING

Help give charities a regular pay-day

With payroll giving the donations you make to charity are taken from your pay before income tax is deducted. The charities you care about get a regular income, your donation goes further and it costs you less.

We run the UK’s biggest payroll giving scheme, CAF Give As You Earn. Read on to find out more about the scheme and how to sign up for it.

Captain Ben Smith explains why he signed up for CAF Give As You Earn through his employer, Easyjet.

HOW PAYROLL GIVING WORKS

Donate straight from your pay before tax

Donations are taken from your pay or company/personal pension after your National Insurance contributions are removed but before Income Tax is calculated and deducted. For instance, if you are a 20% taxpayer, 80% of your donation amount will be taken from your salary and 20% will be taken from the tax which would have gone to HMRC.

How much will my monthly donation amount cost me?

Simply move the slider below to set your donation amount. This will automatically calculate your total monthly donation to charity.
