Payroll giving - Give as you earn

If you want to make a regular donation to Oxfam, Give as you earn is a great way to do it. It's easy to set up, it’s automatic, and because it’s a way of giving tax-free, it means your donation can go further towards fighting the injustices of poverty and inequality.

What is payroll giving?

Payroll Giving or Give As You Earn is a scheme that enables employers to give money from your pay directly to Oxfam, before it’s taxed.

That means any tax you would have paid on your donation goes to Oxfam. It doesn't cost you a penny more, and because it comes from your pay automatically, once it's set up, you won't have to do anything.

How does payroll giving work?

Payroll Giving is a great way to give more to Oxfam straight from your salary. Every £5 you give to Oxfam will only cost you £4 (or £3 if you’re in a higher tax bracket) - meaning your donation will go further towards helping the causes you care about, at no extra cost to you.

What are the benefits of Payroll Giving?

  • Payroll Giving is tax-efficient: Your donations are deducted from your salary before taxes, maximising the impact of your support for Oxfam's work.
  • Getting started is simple: Select your cause and chosen donation amount via a short sign-up form.
  • Giving regularly to Oxfam helps in a special way too: knowing what donations we can expect over the months and years to come means we can plan further into the future and work even more effectively.

How is payroll giving different to gift aid?

Payroll Giving is a simple way to make regular donations straight from your salary, before tax is deducted. It's easier than claiming tax back through Gift Aid – so giving through your payroll means Oxfam can spend less time and money on admin costs, and more on the vital work we support around the world.
