CAF Give As You Earn

A flexible tax-effective way
to get money to charity

Payroll giving is one of the most tax-effective ways for you to donate to charity. Donating to the charity of your choice directly from your salary gives you and the charity you choose to support some unique payday benefits.

Your donation is taken from your pre-tax salary, meaning that part of your donation comes from money that would have otherwise gone to HMRC.

For example making a £20 donation to charity:

As a 20% taxpayer:  
Total donated to charity £20.00
You pay £16.00
Reduction in tax £4.00

As a 40% taxpayer:  
Total donated to charity £20.00
You pay £12.00
Reduction in tax £8.00

To give to charity in this way, your employer must offer a payroll giving scheme. Find out if your employer has a CAF Give As You Earn Scheme, or ask us to contact them on your behalf.
