Payroll Giving or 'give as you earn' is one of the easiest ways to give to a charity, and it's tax-free if you are a UK taxpayer. Every payday you’ll be helping to improve the lives of people living with dementia.
How it works
- You give to Alzheimer’s Society straight through your paycheque.
- All you need to do is fill out the online form and we’ll take care of the rest!
- Anyone can join if their salary or pension is taxed through PAYE.
- Once you have joined the scheme we’ll keep you updated with the latest news from the Society and show you the impact of your donations.
- It’s a stress-free way of giving to us. There are no direct debits or standing orders to set up!
- We understand that you time is precious! Not everyone has time to trek Hadrian’s wall, bake a cupcake or volunteer at a local service. Payroll giving is the perfect way to unite against dementia if you have a busy lifestyle.
- Your contributions are deducted before tax. So, if you’re giving £10 a month, this means only £8 is deducted from your take-home pay. Find out more about the tax breaks here.
How your donation will help
With someone in the UK developing dementia every three minutes your help has never been needed more. There are over 850,000 people across the UK living with dementia and it’s predicted that by 2021, a million of us will have the condition.
We need you to unite with us now to find a cure and create lasting change for people affected by dementia.
