Payroll giving is a simple way to help care for disabled children every month of the year! In fact, regular donations from your pay is a quick, hassle-free way to help Chiltern Centre continue to offer vital disability services across the Thames Valley and South Oxfordshire. To us, regular funding is an essential source of income helping us plan ahead and make sure families who most need help can continue to access our care services.
Because a donation is made before tax deductions, it is one of the most tax-efficient ways to support our disabled children’s charity. This means a monthly gift of just £10 straight out of your salary only costs you £7.80 – or £6 for higher rate tax payers.
You can give any amount you wish and can change or stop donations at any time by giving your payroll department one month’s notice. Once you’ve authorised your employer to deduct a regular amount from your pay, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing you’re helping to make the lives of disabled children and their families that bit easier.
How to help: If you want to make a difference, simply ask your Payroll or HR department if they already operate a payroll-giving scheme and, if so, how to sign up. If not, then ask if they could set one up by contacting Charities Aid Foundation (CAF).
