Company Payroll Giving Schemes or Give As You Earn (GAYE)
You can make a donation to Made Equal straight from your salary, before you pay tax. The benefit for you is that because it comes out before you pay tax, you only pay 80p for every £1 donated. So a £10 donation to Made Equal will only cost you £8. If you are a higher rate tax payer, a donation to Made Equal will cost you even less.
Talk to your payroll department to see if you can contribute to charity via GAYE and the tax man will meet part of your donation. Visit www.payrollgivingcentre.org.uk or www.cafonline.org to find out more.
Please make sure that your fundraising activities abide by the laws and regulations that govern how individuals can fundraise for charities in the country you are based. Both you and Made Equal can be fined if you do not comply with legal regulations.
Please undertake your own risk assessments and make sure you have the relevant insurance, licences or permits required locally.
