Payroll Giving - simple tax free donations to your favourite good causes

Donating money direct from your pay is a quick and easy way to support your favourite charity or good cause.  It provides charities with a regular income and of course it's tax efficient.  Every £5 you donate will cost you just £4, or even less if you are a higher rate tax payer.

The scheme is completely voluntary, confidential and you can donate to any national or local charity or recognised good cause such as schools, places of worship or scout groups.

How it works

Simply complete the online donation form by selecting the donate now button above and you can choose to support any charity of your choice, directly from your pay. For more information please visit CAMbens Staff Benefits.

Pay no tax

Because the donation is taken from your gross pay, every pound you give will only cost you 80p, or only 60p if you are a higher rate tax payer.
