Payroll Giving

If you are working and would like to make a no-fuss regular donation to us, you can ask your Payroll team to arrange Payroll Giving. You are able to nominate a regular deduction from your gross salary to be gifted to a charity of your choosing. The scheme will be administered through the online PAYE tax system, so if your employer has signed up for the scheme you will receive the tax benefits on your donations each payday, rather than waiting to claim at the end of a tax year. The scheme is voluntary and employees can nominate any charity they choose. It costs employers nothing to take part.

If your employer has us on their system as Christchurch Women's Refuge, they will need to change this to Aviva (incorporating Christchurch Women's Refuge) Charitable Trust.
