You can give invaluable assistance by donating your time, products and services, therefore allowing KIDS to plough more funds into supporting disabled children and their families. Payroll givingKnowing that we can rely on your support through Payroll Giving means we can make longer term plans for new and exciting projects for the children we work with, as well as developing the existing vital services already in place. It's easy to set up a Payroll Giving Scheme for your business. There's little in the way of cost and administration, as many payroll systems can handle Payroll giving without any adaptations. Payroll Giving is simple to operate and it can help you to build good relations with your employees. Charities benefit because they get regular donations to help them with good causes. And your employees benefit because they get tax relief on the donations straight away at their top rate of tax, meaning that their donations cost them less. To set up your Payroll giving, please contact our Corporate Team.
