  • helps build better employee relations
  • acts as a recruitment tool – charity links attract good quality applicants
  • a is easy and inexpensive to run

Payroll Giving is a unique way for people to give to charity. By having their donations come straight from their gross pay before tax, employees effectively increase the value of their contributions. So it means more money for charity, at less cost for them.

With payroll giving, any administrative costs can be deducted from company profits for tax purposes.

For a company to offer payroll giving to its employees, it must (by law) be contracted to a charity agency.

To find out how to do this, visit the Inland Revenue's site. It gives details of all the registered charity agencies in the UK, plus step by step set-up instructions.

By supporting Whitechapel, your company will be contributing towards an effective solution, at a local level, that will have a lasting impact for individuals on the streets of London. You can also feel confident that you are entering into a relationship that is mutually beneficial, professional and innovative.

Get involved and help Whitechapel to make a difference.
