Payroll Giving

Payroll Giving

Make a real difference to eye health with a regular tax free gift direct from your salary.

Giving to National Eye Research Centre through Payroll Giving is easy to set up and, as it's tax free, your donations go further.

What is it?

To fund vital research into eye disease, sight loss and blindness, we depend on reliable and regular sources of income. That is why a regular donation through your salary is one of the best ways for you to help us.

You can sign up today using the online Payroll Giving form to start a weekly or monthly donation, and make a real difference to the funding of eye research in the UK.

Why sign up to Payroll Giving?

Payroll Giving allows you to give directly to charity from your salary before tax is deducted. This means if you give £10 a month to National Eye Research Centre and are a basic rate taxpayer, the gift will only cost you £8 from your net pay. If you pay a higher rate of tax, £10 a month will only cost you £6 from your net pay but in each case, National Eye Research Centre still receives £10.

Payroll Giving is easy to set up and you can change your donation at any time by informing your HR department at work.

What are the benefits for employers?

Setting up a Payroll Giving scheme is a great way for companies to show commitment to the causes their staff care about. Payroll Giving also helps charities such as National Eye Research Centre by providing reliable and regular income.

It is quick and easy to set up and administer, and in the UK over 10,000 employers operate the scheme. If you are an employer, we can help promote your scheme with posters and leaflets and provide personalised online sign up forms for your intranet.
