DONATIONS AND FUNDRAISING

Payroll Giving

Give to Chawton House Library using Payroll Giving and the donations are deducted from your salary before you're taxed, so it costs you less.

Payroll Giving is a flexible scheme that enables you to make charitable donations straight from your gross salary (before tax has been deducted). This means that you get immediate tax relief on the value of your donation. Therefore, for a basic rate taxpayer wanting to make a £10 donation, it will only cost £7.80 or just £6 for higher rate taxpayers. For example:

Pledge
Cost to donor
(paying 22% tax)
Cost to donor
(paying 40% tax)

£10

£7.80

£6

Furthermore, many employers are encouraging the scheme by matching their employees' donations.

You can give regularly in this way by authorising your employer to deduct up a monthly amount, but Payroll Giving can also be applied to one-off donations.
