Payroll Giving for Employees

Payroll Giving provides St Michael’s Hospice with a regular income stream to fund our work, so that we can continue to provide the range of services we offer, for many more years to come. Payroll Giving is a tax efficient way of donating to St Michael’s Hospice because your gift it taken from your monthly pay before any tax, meaning that the amount you pay tax on is less, and the Inland Revenue contributes some of your gift – the amount St Michael’s receives is more than the amount taken from your pay because the tax man makes up the difference.

Some examples of the cost to you and the benefits to us are shown below:

Monthly gift agreed Actual cost to you – 20% tax payer Actual cost to you – 40% tax payer
£5 £4 £3
£10 £8 £6
£20 £16 £12
£40 £32 £24

Donating through Payroll Giving is very simple – you agree how much you would like to donate each month, complete the Payroll Giving form to give to your employer and your contribution is automatically deducted from your pay every month, before any tax. The Inland Revenue makes up the difference via a Payroll Giving provider so St Michael’s Hospice receives the full amount of your gift on the same basis as you get paid, whether monthly or weekly.
