The Big Charity Whip Round

What is it?

  • Not all employees want to do a sponsored climb up Kilimanjaro
  • Few employees will be willing to get their legs waxed to raise money
  • And not every employee has the spare time to volunteer for charity work
  • But almost all of them would be happy to spare a few pence a month to help a good cause

That’s what our new initiative – The Big Charity Whip Round – is all about.

It rounds down your participating employee’s net pay to the nearest pound, and the remaining pennies are donated direct to charity.

So if the payslip says £965.23, it’s rounded down to £965, and the 23p is donated to your chosen good cause.

No employee will ever donate more than 99p per pay day, but together they can turn pennies into pounds and make a world of difference.

The Big Charity Whip Round demonstrates your engagement with the wider community, and it allows your employees to join with their colleagues to give a little back together.

Unlike other pennies schemes, we don’t take a cut from your employees’ donations, so every penny goes to where it’s most needed. Your employees can collectively nominate a charity at the start of the scheme, or it could be your corporate charity – it’s up to you.

The charity will also be able to claim gift aid on the donations, making every £1 worth 25% more. We’ll even advise the charity on the best way to manage this.

To take part, there’s a one-off set up fee £99.99 and then a monthly admin fee ranging from £4.99 – £14.99, depending on the size of your workforce.
