Payroll giving

What are the benefits of giving through your pay?

  • It saves you money, while still passing on the full sponsorship donation to us. For instance, signing up to sponsor a child for £19.50 will only cost you £15.60.
  • It's tax-efficient. Your regular donation is taken from your salary before tax is deducted – HMRC pays the rest!
  • It's simple and stress-free, making it a great way to become a child sponsor. And it's easy to get started, with just one form to fill online and no direct debit set-up.

How will my donation change a child’s life?

When you sign up to become a sponsor through payroll giving, you'll be helping to give a child every chance in life.

Your support will help provide everything a child should have growing up: a place in school, clean water, a life free from violence and a future full of possibility.

And that’s not all. Your support not only helps your sponsored child, but their friends, family and other children in their community – giving them the chance to break the cycle of poverty.

How will my sponsorship work?

Once we’ve received your payroll giving form, we’ll send you a welcome pack with a photo of your sponsored child and information about them and their community. This will be followed by a letter or drawing from your sponsored child, which you can respond to.

You’ll then receive annual updates and photos, so you can follow your sponsored child's progress and find out more about the projects we’re supporting in their community. 

If you’d like more information about payroll giving or becoming a sponsor, please contact our Supporter Engagement team on supporterquestions@plan-uk.org or call 0300 777 9779.
