“Payroll Giving is a great way for people to regularly support causes they care about. It’s an easy and secure way to donate to charities and offers the most tax effective service so that an individual’s gift can be as valuable as possible. It’s also a great way to get employers and businesses involved in supporting charities and can engage and inspire whole workforces.
