Payroll Giving for employees
Payroll Giving is a simple way for you to give to any UK charity straight from your gross salary (before tax is deducted), so it costs less to give more. It is the most cost-effective and secure way to give pre-tax to charity. Contributions will provide Hearing Link with regular, reliable donations, allowing us to plan ahead and budget for the future.
Your HR department is likely to have the facility to set up Payroll Giving, allowing you to support the causes that matter to you. You can decide on the donation level and frequency so that you can be sure that a sustainable income is generated for Hearing Link.
What could Payroll Giving support?
Our Helpdesk team provides helpful information and advice throughout the year. We can only maintain this through our team of volunteer responders, who handle an average of 150 enquiries per month. In order to increase awareness and help more people living with hearing loss we need regular funds to deliver our high quality and personal service to all who need it.
“The Hearing Link Helpdesk was extremely easy to contact and gave lots of essential advice over the phone.” says Shona Hudson, Helpdesk and Self Management Programme beneficiary.
Every £1 regularly donated costs you 80p, and even less if you are a higher rate tax payer. When deciding how much you want to give, remember it’s a pre-tax deduction so you can afford to be generous! By giving £12 a month you could help 12 people a year access our Helpdesk service, and costs you £9.60 a month.
Some further values to consider giving are illustrated below.
|Donation Value||This could help…||It costs a 20% tax payer||It costs a 40% tax payer||It costs a 45% tax payer|
|£12||12 people a year||£9.60||£7.20||£6.60|
|£10||10 people a year||£8.00||£6.00||£5.50|
|£6||6 people a year||£4.80||£3.60||£3.30|
