Payroll Giving & Matched Funding

Supporting local patients is easier than ever when you donate through your workplace. Payroll Giving and Matched Funding are two simple ways to make your donation go further.

Payroll Giving

Make payday even better by knowing you are supporting local patients each month.

What is Payroll Giving?

It is a simple, tax-free way of giving to charity directly from your salary.

How does it work?

Payroll Giving donations are deducted before tax. If you pay tax at the basic rate of 20%, for each £1 you donate, it will only cost you 80p. If you pay tax at the higher rate of 40% it will only cost you 60p. This means Payroll Giving donations cost you at least 25% less as they’re taken from your pre-tax pay.

What are the benefits of Payroll Giving?

Payroll Giving provides St Gemma’s Hospice with a regular, long-term income. This is invaluable because it not only provides guaranteed revenue for the Hospice, but enables us to budget and plan ahead more effectively.

For you it is a tax-free, practical way of giving and you know that every £1 you donate will go directly to helping provide specialist care for our patients.

For example, giving just £5 a month (£60 per year) will cover the cost of providing a therapy treatment for a patient helping to reduce stress and anxiety.

Matched Funding

Matched Funding Applications

Many companies support their staff by offering to match funds they have raised, sometimes they can match the funds entirely and sometimes up to a certain amount. We can provide you with an official receipt (both paper and PDF) to show we have received your donation and any additional information that your matched funding application requires, please do get in touch using this form and we will help in any way we can.
