Payroll Giving is a simple way for you to give as you earn  to charity through your pay packet. It is sometimes called Give As You Earn.

A Payroll Gift to CAFOD can give lifesaving help – like food, water and shelter – to families in urgent need.


Payroll Giving is a tax-efficient way to give

Payroll Gifts are deducted from your pay before tax. It is a way of giving money to charity without paying tax on it.

  • If you are a basic rate taxpayer, each £1 you give will cost you only 80p from your net pay.

  • If you are a higher rate taxpayer, Payroll Giving is even more tax-efficient, as each £1 you give will cost you only 60p from your net pay.

Payroll Giving is easy to set up

  • Speak to your HR department at work

  • Or sign up with our online Payroll Giving form. The form is administered by Payroll Giving in Action (PGA) on our behalf. And if your employer does not yet offer a Payroll Giving scheme, PGA will help them get started.

Payroll Giving is flexible

You can give as much or as little as you wish. You can also reduce, increase or cancel your payroll gift at any time after setup – simply ask your HR department at work to change it for you.
