Donate via Payroll Giving

If your employer is registered with a Payroll Giving Agency you can support Services For Education through your payroll.

This is a tax efficient way of making a regular donation, direct from your salary before any tax is deducted. This means that if you pay the basic 20% tax rate and pledge £10 a month, you will only pay £8 from your salary.

To set up Payroll Giving, please get in touch with your company’s payroll department and check they are signed up – if they don’t ask them if it’s something they could offer, perhaps as part of their company CSR initiatives.
