Payroll Giving is a scheme which allows you to donate through your payroll and on a tax-free basis, to a charity of your choice. Your charitable donations are deducted from your gross pay before tax.
You can choose to make regular donations monthly through payroll giving, or you can make a one-off donation. Some of our supporters will make a one-off donation through their payroll when they receive a bonus, so when you benefit, people who are blind and partially sighted benefit also!
There is no minimum donation amount through Payroll Giving, so how much you give and how often is entirely up to you. Some Guide Dogs supporters give a regular gift of £5 or £10 a month, while others like to support the charity with a one-off donation when they have received a bonus.
To stop your regular Payroll Giving donation simply speak with your employer’s payroll department who will be able to bring these donations to a close.
No. When you leave your job, your Payroll Giving donations will stop automatically. In order to continue these donations, you can speak with your Payroll department in your new organisation to see if they offer Payroll Giving and set up your charitable giving again.
No. When you donate through Payroll Giving your donations are claimed pre-tax. So, there is no need for us to claim tax back through Gift Aid.
Simply ask your Payroll Department or you can visit Geared for Giving who can inform you if your employer has a scheme.
Geared for Giving also offer advice on how to set up Payroll Giving in your workplace if your employer does not currently have a scheme.
Your Payroll Giving donations will go towards the funding of our life changing work. From guide dog puppies in training to our children and young people’s services, your donations enable us to strive for a future where every person with sight loss has the confidence and support to live their lives to the full.
Your support will help us continue to facilitate partnerships with our world-famous guide dogs, which are a unique way for people with sight loss to move around safely and confidently. In addition, your support will help us to provide a range of mobility and other rehabilitation services such as white cane training.
Your charitable donations will also assist us to campaign passionately to break down barriers – both physical and legal – to ensure people who are blind or partially sighted can get out and about on their own terms.
