Choosing to give to the Miscarriage Association through a regular giving scheme could not be more straightforward.
Simply click the button below and choose the ‘Monthly’ option. You can choose one of the suggested amounts, or change it for one of your own. All donations are processed securely by JustGiving. Please note JustGiving does not charge the Miscarriage Association a fee for processing these donations. Instead, you will be prompted to add an extra amount to help cover JustGiving’s costs in providing this service. But you would rather not do this, you can go to the drop down and select ‘other’ and then enter a different amount or zero.
JustGiving also processes Gift Aid for us. Gift Aid means we can claim an extra 25% from HMRC, so do please tick the UK Taxpayer box if that is applicable to you.
What is Payroll Giving?
Payroll Giving is a really easy, tax-efficient way of donating through your pay. Sometimes known as Give As You Earn, the scheme is a convenient and tax-effective way to make a regular donation to the Miscarriage Association, and it actually costs you less to give us more!
With Payroll Giving you can donate to the M.A directly from your pay before any tax is deducted, so that the amount you give is not included in HMRC calculations for the tax owed on your total salary.
For example, if you pay the basic 20% tax rate, for every £1 that you earn, 20p is paid in tax. That means if you pledge to give the M.A £10 a month via your payroll, we will receive £10, but only £8 will be deducted from your net pay. If you pay income tax at the higher rate of 40%, you could pledge £10 a month and only £6 will be deducted from your pay. The difference in the two amounts is paid to us instead of to HMRC.
Anyone who pays UK tax through PAYE can donate through Payroll Giving, and there is no minimum or maximum amount that you can donate.
How do you set up Payroll Giving donations?
Thousands of UK employers are registered for the scheme, so the first step would be to ask your employer if they offer Payroll Giving. If they do, they will have a simple form for you to complete so that they can arrange everything for you.
If your employer does not currently offer Payroll Giving, you can ask them if they would be prepared to set one up. To organise a Payroll Giving scheme, your employer would need to register with an approved Payroll Giving agency. You might want to send your employer this link which explains how to arrange this: https://www.gov.uk/payroll-giving
If you want to change or cancel your regular payroll donation in the future then you just need to tell your employer and they will arrange this for you. However, if you move to another employer, you will need to set up a new donation through Payroll Giving scheme with them.
