Payroll Giving, also known as “Give as you Earn“ is an easy way to make a regular donation to The Girls’ Network.  Donations from your payslip are made before tax. This means money that would normally go to HM Revenue & Customs is given to the charity instead – so your gift could be worth up to 40% more.


Is there a minimum amount required?

No, you can give as much or as little as you’d like.

Is Payroll Giving taxable?

Payroll Giving is deducted from your pay before tax, so the gift is tax-free to the supporter, i.e. £10 will only cost £8 if you are a standard rate tax payer.

Payroll Giving or Gift Aid?

Payroll Giving automatically includes tax so we don’t need to claim Gift Aid. The only way that higher rate taxpayers can automatically pass their tax to charity is through Payroll Giving, meaning they're able to give more at a lower cost to them. If you're donating by any other means to charity, remember to tick the Gift Aid box if you're able to.

What if I change jobs or retire?

If you change jobs, your Payroll Giving will stop automatically. Make sure to ask your new employer if they have a Payroll Giving system in place and you can set it back up in your new role. If you retire, you may need to check with your employer. Some employers also run the scheme on pensions so people can continue to give to the charities they care about.

Signing up

Ask your employer about making a monthly donation through payroll giving. Each payday, your payslip will display your donation alongside any other deductions you’ve signed up to.  If your employer doesn’t already have a payroll giving scheme in place, it’s quick and easy to set one up.
