Donate in other ways
Simple, tax free giving direct from your pay
What is payroll giving?
Payroll giving (also known as 'Give As You Earn') is an easy way for employees paid by PAYE to give regularly to a charity such as Parkinson's UK.
How does it work?
Every time you are paid, a donation amount of your choice is taken from your pay before tax is deducted. So, if you pledge to donate £5 per month, it would actually only cost you £4 on basic tax rate or £3 on the higher rate.
What are the benefits?
As donations are deducted before tax is calculated, it is one of the most simple and tax-efficient ways of giving to us.
Your regular contribution will mean that we can plan well into the future and make sure we provide the best services for people affected by Parkinson's.
How do I get started?
If you would like to donate in this way, please contact your company's payroll department and ask for the relevant form. You will need to supply our 'Give as you earn' registration number (find our GYE number) and our name, address and charity number as below:
The Dystonia Society
2n Floor, 89 Albert Embankment
Registered Charity Number in England and Wales No. 1062595 and in Scotland SC042127
Remember - your company might have a policy to match payroll donations. Your payroll department should be able to tell you more.
