Payroll Giving is a great way to make regular donations to the Scottish Wildlife Trust straight from your pay.
By giving to us regularly in this way, we automatically receive the tax you would have paid on the donation (your payroll department sorts this out for us). This means we don’t need to claim Gift Aid back on your gift – less admin for us, and no Direct Debit required from you!
Because donations are deducted from your gross pay (before tax is deducted) this gives immediate tax relief on donations and means it costs less for you to donate. It’s one of the most efficient ways for you to support the work of the Trust, especially if you’re a higher rate tax payer – some employers will even match your donation!
The table below gives some examples:
|Your pledge||As a 20% tax payer you pay||As a 40% tax payer you pay||As a 45% tax payer you pay||Scottish Wildlife Trust receives|
|*These figures are dependent on whether your employer chooses to pay the 25p administration charge|
