Donate through your salary

Payroll Giving is an easy‚ tax effective way to make a regular donation to support Age Cymru and help make a difference to people in later life.

It enables you to give to Age Cymru straight from your gross salary (before tax is deducted) giving immediate tax relief on those donations. It is also possible to donate in this way through a pension.

Basic rate tax payers

If you pay tax at the basic tax rate, for every £1 that you earn 20p is paid in tax. If you pledge £10 a month‚ we receive the full amount but only £8 will be deducted from your net pay.

Higher rate tax payers

If you pay income tax at the higher rate of 40% only £6.00 would be deducted from your net pay, and at the super rate of 50% only £5.00 would be deducted for every £10 pledged.
It is more efficient for higher rate taxpayers to donate through Payroll Giving than Gift Aid as charities are unable to claim back tax above the basic rate through the Gift Aid scheme.

What to do next

To set up payroll giving, please download, print off, complete and sign a opens link in new window Payroll Giving Form opens link in new window and return it to the address on the form.
If your company is not registered for the scheme they can sign up with a payroll giving agency who can process employee donations. There is a list of agencies at the Payroll Giving Centre website opens link in new window
There is no long-term commitment. If your circumstances change and you no longer wish to donate to us‚ simply tell your employer. Also‚ if you change your job‚ your donations will not be able to be transferred to your new employer - you will need to start a new payroll giving scheme.
