Payroll Giving for Employers

Payroll Giving is a tax-efficient way for your employees to donate to St Peter's Hospice.

  • No set-up costs
  • Once it's set up, it's managed by a Payroll Giving Agency
  • Effective way to show your commitment to CSR

How it works

Payroll Giving Agencies facilitate the secure transition of funds from gross wages directly to the charity's bank account.

Your company needs to have a contract with a Payroll Giving Agency to allow donations to be deducted from your gross pay. Once you set up this contract, employees who want to give through payroll will complete a short form for your payroll department to process.

Are there any costs?

There is no cost to you to set up Payroll Giving.

Payroll Giving Agencies can charge a processing fee of up to 5% of the donation amount. However, some agencies don't charge, and some charge a transaction fee per employee. You may choose to cover this fee for your employees, otherwise the Agency will deduct it from donations.

What are the benefits?

Corporate Social Responsibility involves taking opportunities to contribute positively to your community, and empowering your employees to do the same. Setting up Payroll Giving is an easy way to demonstrate your values, and support a vital, much-loved local charity.

Why support St Peter's Hospice?

St Peter's Hospice provides care and support to adults who are living with a progressive life-limiting illness in the Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset area. Over 80% of our care is provided to people in the place they call home.

The Hospice relies on donations to allow us to continue this essential work. It costs approximately £25,000 to run our services for just one day – so every contribution matters.

Interested in supporting us in other ways?

Our corporate partners support the Hospice in a wide range of ways, from becoming Charity of the Year supporters to sponsoring events, volunteering and giving gifts in kind.
