If running a marathon or trekking across a mountain is not for you but you would like to contribute, you can through payroll giving, which allows you to make donations directly from your salary and you get tax relief on your donation. The donations are made after your National Insurance contribution is calculated but before Income Tax is worked out and deducted, you only pay tax on what’s left.
Talk to your HR department or personnel department about whether a scheme is already in place, but if not, setting up a scheme is easy, and the costs are minimal. To learn more about how payroll giving works visit HMRC. Or register with one of the following Payroll Giving Agencies and they will talk you through the process: Charities Aid Foundation (CAF); Charitable Giving; or the Charities Trust.
