Are you employed?
Would you consider giving a small regular donation to Brake, direct from your pay, on Pay Day?
Give as you Earn (also known as Payroll Giving) is an easy way you can offer Brake long term regular income. Regular giving is a fantastic way to support Brake. It provides us with a long term, steady income stream that enables us to plan our work more effectively and continue to provide support for families affected by road crashes.
Payments that you make, through a payroll giving scheme, are deducted from your gross pay before tax is deducted. This means that you are given tax relief on your donation immediately and at your highest rate of tax. If you want to make a £5 donation to charity, £5 is deducted from your gross pay, but you save £1 in tax, so it only costs you £4. The full £5 comes to Brake.
How does it work?
You will need to fill in this form.
You don't have to inform your employer about your gift to us, it will all be sorted out for you. This usually takes a bit of time so don't worry if your donation doesn’t come out of your next pay packet.
How will I know if I'm eligible to join a scheme?
You’ll be eligible if you’re an employee or a pensioner and your employer deducts Pay As You Earn (PAYE) tax from your salary or pension.
How much should I give?
You can give however much you'd like; it's entirely up to you. Remember, payroll donations are before tax so they really are the most efficient way to donate.
What if my circumstances change?
You can change the amount you give or stop donating at any time. If you move job and want to continue supporting our work you’ll need to sign up with your new employer.
What will you do with my personal details?
We'll only use your contact details again if you opt to receive further communications from us. We will not pass your details onto anyone else.
