The Big Charity Whip Round

So, what is it?

  1. It’s a fundraising solution for companies looking to raise more funds for any charitable causes that they support centrally as a business. It can be run alongside other workplace fundraising schemes such as Payroll Giving and is a fantastic addition to any CSR strategy.
  2. It’s a way of employees fundraising in the workplace which doesn’t involve any baking, baths of beans, hiking up mountains or donating significant sums of money.
  3. It’s a tax effective source of income for charities which can either be used as a strategic part of a corporate partnership, or just something that a company does for you just because they think you’re great. Oh, did we mention you’ll get Gift Aid on top (although you won’t have to lift a finger to get it – that’ll all be done for you)

Overall: It’s a simple and easy way to give tax-effectively to the good causes!

And how does it work…?

  • Great for demonstrating your CSR credentials
  • Helps build morale and boost staff engagement
  • Opportunity to match your employees’ donations
  • Simple to set up and simple for employees to join
  • Low cost addition to your CSR or benefits package
  • Easy way to raise money for the causes your company cares about

It is powered by two separate organisations working hand in hand; The Payroll Giving Team and Charitable Giving.

It’s quick and easy to set up. Just confirm your company’s payroll software can round off the pennies from someone’s net-pay, then complete the set-up form.

After that it’s all about getting people giving; The Payroll Giving Team will supply all the tools and resources needed to achieve this!

At the end of each month the donated pennies get passed to Charitable Giving as a lump sum; they will claim Gift Aid on it* and once £50 or more has been donated, you tell them which charity to give what  amount to.

*T’s & C’s applicable and outlined in full in the ‘Employer Pack’ which can be obtained by emailing
