What are the benefits of Payroll Giving to you?

When you set up a donation through your payroll, the amount you choose to give is taken from your salary before tax deductions, so the cost to you is less.

For example, if you want to give UNICEF a regular gift of £10, only £8 will be deducted from your salary each month. The extra £2 comes from the Inland Revenue.

By setting up a regular gift to UNICEF through your payroll you are helping us to improve the lives of children worldwide.   

What are the benefits of Payroll Donations to children?

Payroll Giving - also known as Give as you Earn (GAYE) or Workplace Giving - ensures Unicef automatically receives all of the tax from your gift, even if you pay a higher rate of tax.

By setting up a regular donation through your payroll, you can support Unicef’s work helping to uphold the rights of children around the world. For example, your donation could help to protect a child’s right to be healthy by providing mosquito nets to protect children from malaria, or by supplying life-saving treatment for malnourished children.

Some employers offer a ‘matched giving’ scheme which means they will match the gift you make to Unicef each month, some even ‘double-match’ their employees’ contributions. Ask your employer if they participate in the matched Giving Payroll scheme.
