Payroll giving, Make a difference every pay day with tax-effective donating

Payroll Giving, also known as Give As You Earn (GAYE), is one of the simplest and most efficient ways for your employees to support us.

The scheme allows you to automatically give a gift to us each payday before tax is taken out of your pay, so it is also tax-efficient for you! The scheme is easy to opt in and out of, giving you full control over your gift to the charity.

Each pound you donate will cost you at least 20% less and you will be helping to save lives every time you are paid!


How Payroll Giving Works

A £10 donation to DSAA costs you:

£8 if you pay the basic rate tax (20 per cent)

£6 if you pay the higher rate tax (40 per cent)

£5.50 if you pay the additional rate tax (45 per cent)
