Payroll Giving for employers
Payroll Giving is a simple way for your employees to give to any UK charity straight from their 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.
However big or small your business is, Payroll Giving is quick and easy to set up. Your HR department is likely to already have this facility, but if not it comes with minimal expense to put in place. By offering Payroll Giving you demonstrate your commitment to the causes that matter to your employees.
Donation levels and frequency are at the discretion of employees, but we can monitor the value of contribution so that you can be confident that collectively 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.” Shona Hudson, Helpdesk and Self Management Programme beneficiary
Every £1 regularly donated costs an employee 80p, and even less for higher rate tax payers. When deciding how much your employees want to give, remind them it’s a pre-tax deduction so they can afford to be generous! Each employee who gives £12 a month could help 12 people a year access our Helpdesk service, and this costs them £9.60 a month.
Some further values for them 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|
