This is a tax effective way to make a regular donation to Richmond’s Hope through your place of work. Donating straight from you salary or “Payroll Giving”, is a uniquely cost effective way to support our work. You decide how much you would like to give each month – £5 for example. This amount is then paid to us straight from your monthly salary before tax is deducted. That means a gift of £5 actually costs you only £3.90 (or £3.00 if you pay tax at a higher rate). Ask your human resources department if your company run a Payroll Giving scheme if they do download the payroll giving form and give it to your payroll department.
Val Scholfield for the Glasgow branch on 0141 230 6123 or Kelley Scoular for the Edinburgh branch on 0131 661 6818.

How Gift Aid works
The Gift Aid scheme is for gifts of money by individuals who pay UK tax. Gift Aid donations are regarded as having basic rate tax deducted by the donor.
Charities or CASCs take your donation (which is money you’ve already paid tax on) and reclaim basic rate tax from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) on its ‘gross’ equivalent – the amount before basic rate tax was deducted.
Basic rate tax is 20 per cent, so this means that if you give £10 using Gift Aid, it’s worth £12.50 to the charity. For donations between 6 April 2008 and 5 April 2011 the charity or CASC will also get a separate government supplement of 3p on every pound you give.
