Payroll giving

Set up a regular donation through your payroll to help us build long-term solutions and put an end to hunger for good.

Payroll giving is a way for you to donate to the causes you care about directly through your salary without paying tax on it.

With payroll giving, donors provide charities with a regular source of income to allow them to plan ahead and budget for the future. It’s one of the most tax-efficient ways of donating.

Why Action Against Hunger?

For almost 40 years we have led the global fight against hunger. Our teams support vulnerable communities in some of the hardest-to-reach places through our life-saving programmes. We’ll always be there for children and their families but we can’t do it alone.

We want to build long-term solutions to put an end to hunger for good. Your regular gift can help make this a reality.

Why hunger?

It’s unacceptable that, in a world that produces enough food to feed its entire population, over 3 billion people can’t even afford the cheapest healthy diet.

Together we can change this

How does it work?

When you set up a regular donation through your payroll, your donation is taken from your salary before tax, so it will cost you less. For example, if you want to set up a regular gift of £10, £8 will be deducted from your salary each month and the remaining £2 will come from the Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs.

Simply fill in an online form and our payroll giving agency will take care of the rest. Once it’s processed, your employer will be told and your donation will come out of your salary each payday.

Set up online now

If you’re an employer, you can contact a payroll giving agency to set up a scheme. You can request a list of approved payroll giving agencies by email.

Why not ask your employees if they’d be interested in taking part in payroll giving? We’d be happy to help you set it up.

What is the cost of running a payroll giving scheme?

Agencies may charge an admin fee. They usually deduct this from employees’ donations before they pass on gifts to the charity. Employers can choose to pay the fee, meaning charities will get more money, and you can deduct any costs of running the scheme from your business profits before tax.
