Payroll and Matched Giving

Payroll giving

Your company may offer payroll giving. Payroll giving means that your donation is deducted from your salary before tax, so each £1.00 you give will only cost you 78p, or 60p if you are a higher rate taxpayer. Your Payroll or HR department will be able to provide you with details if they run this scheme.

Matched giving

Many companies will help support charities through a matched giving scheme, whereby they will match gifts donated by their employees. Some will match pound for pound, and others will even double donations made to registered charities by its employees. If you are making a gift to Clayesmore, please check with your Payroll or HR department whether your company operates a scheme like this as it could make your donation worth even more to us.

If your company is not listed, please contact your Human Resources department to enquire if such a scheme exists. A number of overseas organisations also operate similar schemes, particularly those in the US.  As this list is by no means definitive, please do let us know if you find any omissions or errors.
