About Give As You Earn
Give As You Earn enables you to give regularly to Rainbow Trust from your gross salary (before income tax is deducted). It is simple, quick and effective and guarantees a regular flow of funds to support families who have a seriously ill child.
Your donation is an easy tax-effective way to give monthly to Rainbow Trust so it costs you less to give more! For example, if you pay tax at the basic rate of 20%, it will only cost you £4, yet Rainbow Trust receives £5 as the tax is included.
Why have a Give As You Earn scheme for your employees?
Research shows that offering Give As You Earn to your employees increases staff morale, retention and recruitment and improves company image. It also enables you to increase your company’s charitable giving with little cost or effort, and allows you to monitor the funds raised by your company. Some companies also match the contributions made by their employees which provide a significant boost to the vital work of Rainbow Trust.
Not signed up to a Give As You Earn Scheme?
Employers need to be registered with a Payroll Giving Agency (PGA) which is simple and easy to do. For more information visit the HMRC website. There are no costs associated with setting up a scheme, the administration is minimal and any administration costs are tax deductible.
