Setup Payroll Giving – Employer
It’s simple to set up Payroll Giving, just follow our step by step guide
Step 1 – Get everybody involved!
We here at Fundraising department at St Nicholas Hospice Care would love to come in and talk to you about our charity and the support that we give to people living with life shortening conditions and their families in West Suffolk and Thetford. We can explain how great Payroll Giving is and the real benefits that regular giving has to our charity.
Step 2- Sign up with a Payroll Giving Agency (PGA’s)
If you haven’t already sign up with a Payroll Giving Agency – they are an agency that facilitates Payroll Giving and distributes the donations from your employees. A list of HMRC approved can be found HMRC Payroll Giving page.PGAs are vital because donations that are made through gross pay, require a HM Revenue & Customs ‘audit trail’ to ensure money is going to the right places. If you already have a PGA set up then please pass those details to us so that we can register with them.
Step 3- Promote Payroll Giving to your employees
Many of your employees may not have heard of St Nicholas Hospice Care or the benefits of Payroll Giving, we have employee leaflets explaining both. Other ways to launch the scheme and engage your employees could be through a ‘Payroll Giving Fundraising Event’ – these types of events can be great fun and help to build employee engagement.
Step 4- Sign Up!
Your employees can simply sign up to your Payroll Giving Scheme and start to support our charity by completing the form on the staff leaflet and returning it to the HR dept. You may want to match fund the money that your employees have donated, showing further support to causes that they care about and also show commitment to your local community.
Step 5- Highlight Success
We can give you regular updates from the hospice and news as to what your donations have helped achieve for our patients and families.
