Ways to support us
Payroll Giving is an easy and tax efficient way for employees to donate to their favourite charities. It is simple for employers to set up and
run and is an excellent way to show support for employees’ charitable giving. Payroll Giving is a regular form of income for St Mary’s Hospice.
Knowing that we will receive your gift can make all the difference as thanks to you this enables us to plan ahead and help us provide even
more care, comfort and support for patients, carers and their families.
Information for Employees
How does Payroll Giving Work?
Payroll Giving enables you to decide how much and to which charities you want to give to. Donations are collected directly from your salary each
month before the deduction of income tax. Such immediate tax relief means that anyone paying the standard rate income tax at 22% can give a
£5 donation at a cost of just £3.90. The £1.10 what would have gone to the Inland Revenue benefits your chosen charity instead!
How do I start donating from my salary?
You just need to check if your company has a Payroll Giving scheme set up. If they do, all you need to do is decide how much you would like to
donate and then complete this form to fill in and the donations will then
be deducted from your salary each month.
What if my company does not have a Payroll Giving scheme in place?
Your employer will need to register with a Payroll Giving Agency (details below). When this has been done, your employer will be able to supply
you with a form to register for the scheme. Please note this may take a little while to process, but as soon as this is in place you will see
it on your wage slip, to reassure you, you are in full control. If we can help support you or your company with this please email us at
