Payroll Giving

What is Payroll Giving?

Payroll Giving is one of the easiest ways of improving employee participation in charitable giving. Payroll Giving is a scheme that enables employees to give to your charity straight from their gross salary (before tax is deducted), and to receive immediate tax relief.

Don’t have a lot of time? An easy and effective way to fundraise is through the Payroll Giving scheme.

DMWS are a registered charity that is recognised by HMRC for tax purposes and can receive gifts this way.
