Give direct from your salary


What is Payroll Giving (PG)?

  • It is an easy way to give money to charity without paying tax on it. We will receive the tax on your donation that would have been otherwise sent to the Chancellor of the Exchequer.

  • Recognised Payroll Giving Agencies (PGA) process PG for charities. Aspyre Africa uses “Charitable Giving” as its PGA.

Why choose Payroll Giving as an employee?

  • Payroll Giving donations are deducted from your salary before tax, so each £1.00 you give will only cost you either: 80p (lower rate taxpayer), 60p (higher rate taxpayer) or 55p (additional rate taxpayer)

  • Additionally, if your employer pays the administration charge and/or matches the Payroll Giving deductions, the nominated charities benefit from your participation by receiving enhanced donations.

  • Once set up, your regular donation to us is automatic.

Why choose Payroll Giving as an employer?

  • It will enhance your company’s social responsibility profile.

  • It will provide good PR opportunities.

  • You will be supporting employees wishing to make tax effective donations.

  • It can boost staff morale and aids both staff retention and recruitment.

How do I sign up?


  • Check if your employer already has a Payroll Giving Scheme. If not, ask your employer if they would be interested in setting one up.

  • Complete the attached Donation Choice Form specifying the amount to be allocated to Aspyre Africa.

  • Return the form by post to Charitable Giving.

  • Once set up, there is nothing more for you to do.

  • If your employer or pension provider does not operate a Payroll Giving Scheme, you can set up an Individual Options Account and make donations through Gift Aid. For this, contact Charitable Giving


  • If you operate PAYE, you can set up a Payroll Giving Scheme.

  • To set it up, download the Payroll Giving Pack for employers and follow the instructions.

What does it cost?

  • There is a small administration charge to cover the cost of processing and distributing the monies to charity. The charge is agreed on either a percentage or fixed-cost basis and can either be paid by the employee or the company (tax-allowable expense against profits).
