Three easy steps to sign up for payroll giving
1. Give your giving some thought
To give to charity through CAF Give As You Earn your employer
must offer a payroll giving scheme. Find out if your employer has a CAF Give As You Earn
scheme. If not why not champion it within your organisation? Or
ask us to contact
them on your behalf.
You can donate directly to the charity of your choice and/or set
up a CAF Charity
Account which you can fund through CAF Give As You Earn
and then use to sponsor people or donate to a charity when it's
You have complete control over which charity or charities
receive your money. You can donate through CAF Give As You Earn to
any of the 160,000 registered charities or nominate a smaller
charitable organisation. You also have the option to remain
anonymous from any charity you donate to – just indicate this on
the Donor Instruction Form.
You can set the amount you would like to donate and how often*.
Every £1 you donate only costs you 80p if you are a basic rate tax
payer – less if you’re on a higher rate.
We take a small administration fee from your donation, but
many employers choose to pay this on behalf of their employees.
Contact your payroll department to find out if your organisation
pays the administration fee for you.
With CAF Give As You Earn, you have the flexibility to change
your mind and amend your donation at any time. Simply complete a
Donor Instruction Form to
inform us and your employer of the changes.
* To set up a CAF Charity Account you need to top up a minimum
of £10 a month or £120 a year.
