A great way to give more.

How Payroll Giving works

Payroll Giving allows you to make regular donations to Ormiston Families directly from your pay packet or occupational pension. Your donations are made before Income Tax is deducted, which means that you are given tax relief on your donation immediately - and at your highest rate of tax.

For example:

  • You pledge £5
  • Which actually costs you £4 at the standard tax rate, or £3 at the higher tax rate
  • And Ormiston Families receives the full £5

Who can use Payroll Giving?

You can use Payroll Giving if both of the following apply:

  • You are an employee or you get an occupational pension and your employer/pension provider deducts tax through the PAYE system
  • Your employer or pension provider operates a Payroll Giving scheme

How do you start Payroll Giving?

Most employers who operate a Payroll Giving scheme will have a form for you to complete to authorise the donations to be deducted from your regular pay. Please ask your employer for a copy of this form and complete the details. Your employer will then make arrangements with an agency who will transfer your donations to us.

It would be great if you could also let us know that you will be donating in this way so that we can update our records and say thank you. You can contact us on 01473 705040 Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, or email fundraising@ormistonfamilies.org.uk.
