Donate to the Women’s Section directly through your pay packet

What is Payroll Giving?

Payroll Giving is a simple and efficient way to donate monthly to the Women’s Section through your salary. Sometimes known as ‘Give As You Earn’, it is a HM Customs & Revenue scheme that enables employees to donate tax- free through their pay to any charity in the UK.  It’s simple, efficient and it helps us secure regular and reliable income throughout the year, which means we can better plan our welfare assistance.

So if you're a basic rate taxpayer and want to donate £10, your donation will only cost you £8. You'll make a 20% tax saving while we still get the full £10. If you're a higher rate taxpayer you'll make a 40% saving, so the same donation will only cost £6.

Here is an example of how the tax benefit of CAF Give As You Earn works based on a monthly donation of £15:

How do I set up Payroll Giving?

The first thing you need to do is check if your employer is signed up to the scheme. If they’re not, encourage them to do so as there are many company benefits! Just get them to visit for full instruction.

If they are signed up, all you need to do is fill out our Payroll Giving Form (PDF) and return to our freepost address (listed on the form). We will then pass your details on to our Payroll Giving Agency, who will instruct your employer to set up your gift. You will not have to make any arrangements yourself, however it normally takes a couple of months to process a payroll gift so don’t be alarmed if the deduction doesn’t appear on your next payslip.

What if my circumstances change?

If your circumstances change and you want to stop or change the amount you give, you can do so at any time.  If you move job and want to carry on donating to us through Payroll Giving, you will have to set up a new regular gift.
