The benefits for you, as an employer, do not stop at showing that you care about the causes your staff wish to support and are effectively fulfilling your Corporate Social Responsibility by having a Payroll Giving Scheme.  You are also eligible to receive government commendations to honour your commitment to Payroll Giving; the Payroll Giving Quality Mark, and you also qualify to enter your company  for the National Payroll Giving Excellence Awards.

Success!

Our aim is to increase participation up to 10% and beyond in every company we work with. We are proud to say that we were the first professional fundraising organisation to help a retail business, Home Retail Group, to obtain the Gold Payroll Giving Quality Mark in 2005, and they have since received the Gold Mark each year. See our Case Studies for further information.

We have helped our corporate partners achieve outstanding success at the National Payroll Giving Excellence Awards. At the 2009 Awards;

Aviva won “ Best Large Employer Campaign”

Howdens Joinery were highly commended in “Best re-launch of an existing scheme”

In 2008 and 2007 we also had success, winning 4 other categories.
