Payroll Giving for employees

Become a payroll giver

The most efficient way to give

Payroll Giving is a scheme run by your employer that allows you to donate to a charity tax-free through your salary. It's also known as Give As You Earn (GAYE).

You can donate to as many charities as you like. And your donation will automatically stop when you leave your employer.

Sign up





Sign up to support Cancer Research UK via our online form. Choose your amount.

We’ll deal with the admin and notify your employer.

Your payroll team will take the donation from your gross salary each payday. It can take 4-6 weeks for this to start.

Cancer Research UK will receive your gift and use it to help beat cancer.

The potential of your donations

The amount of tax relief your chosen charity receives depends on your tax band. For example:

Amount you give each payday Cost to a standard 20% taxpayer Cost to a 40% taxpayer Cost to a  45% taxpayer
£10 £8 £6 £5.50
£50 £40 £30 £27.50
