Payroll giving

Payday! It’s the best day of the month. Some people celebrate by hitting the shops. Others by socialising with friends. Why not share a little of that joy with us through payroll giving?

You can help us help everyone with cancer live life as fully as they can by making a regular contribution through your payroll.


Give as you earn

Not only is it a super simple way to support us, it's also tax effective because donations are deducted before you pay tax.

For example, if you donate £10, only £8 comes out of your salary and the taxman pays the rest. Or if you're on a higher tax rate (40%), only £6 comes out of your salary and the taxman pays the rest.

What are the benefits?

Payroll Giving. Workplace Giving. Give As You Earn. Whatever your company calls it, there are a great number of benefits by giving to Macmillan this way:

  • Ease - It’s super easy to set up.
  • Privacy - We don’t need your bank details as the donation will come straight to us from your salary.
  • You’re in Charge - You can change or stop your donation at any time by contacting your payroll department.
  • The Tax Man Helps - Donations are made before income tax is applied, making it tax efficient.

How you'll be helping

By giving through your salary each payday, you will be helping us continue providing physical, financial and emotional support through all the services we offer. The fact that we know how much and how often you will donate means that we can plan ahead and make sure your hard-earned cash is put to the best possible use.
