A monthly donation of £10 via Payroll Giving actually only costs you £7.80 (or even less if you are in the higher tax bracket)!
Did you know you can make a gift through your pay online today and help rebuild the lives of Big Issue vendors across the UK? You can also donate shares to our charity, as well as donate your tax rebate to us.
Why choose payroll giving?
Giving a regular gift to The Big Issue Foundation through your pay is easy. All you need to do is go to our online form and follow the instructions. There is no need to send any financial details or sign a Gift Aid declaration.
With payroll giving, your gift is taken before you pay any tax – meaning that with a gift of only £10 we will receive at least £12.50 and as much as £18.18 depending on your tax band.

How does it work?
Once you’ve filled in the form, our payroll giving partner, Payroll Giving in Action, will set up your gift with your employer for you. You will need your payroll or employee number and National Insurance Number to hand, which can both be found on your payslip.
To give to us in this way, your employer will need to operate a payroll giving scheme. If you’re not sure if they do, fill in the form in any case and we will let you know. If they don’t have a payroll giving scheme, we can also provide them with information about how to set one up.
What do I do if I’m changing jobs?
If you are changing jobs, your regular gift will automatically stop. But don’t worry – you can easily start giving again with your new employer by filling in our simple online form.
