Payroll Giving


A hassle free way to give through your pay!

Payroll Giving, also known as ‘Give As You Earn’ (GAYE), is a simple way to make regular charitable donations straight from your salary. It’s also one of the most tax-effective ways of doing this as it comes out of your gross pay (before tax), saving you at least 25%.

With almost 90% of our funding made up of your donations, we urgently need your support as we continue to deliver our services to people with chest, heart and stroke conditions during the pandemic. You can help us to continue to provide these vital services to thousands of people in Northern Ireland by signing up to GAYE today.

Your generosity will help to fund our ongoing care and support services, as well as our COVID-19 Recovery Service and our ongoing innovative research into chest, heart and stroke illnesses.

How do I donate?

Setting up a regular donation is easy. If your salary or pension is paid through a company, you can make a regular donation to us through your company’s Payroll Giving scheme. You choose how much you would like to donate, either monthly, or weekly. Just download and complete our simple form and give it to your Payroll or HR department to process.

If your employer doesn’t offer this type of scheme you could ask them to set one up by contacting the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) . Alternatively, you could consider setting up a regular gift to NICHS and gift-aiding your donation.

Every time you’re paid, your Payroll Department will deduct the agreed amount from your salary; there's nothing more for you to do. Your donation will cost you even less than it would normally, as it comes out of your gross salary (before tax). That means, if you agree to give £5 then, as a basic rate taxpayer, you’ll actually only pay £4 as the taxperson will make up the remaining £1.
