Introduction
Become a Friend of Ace through Payroll Giving

Regular giving means we can plan for the future, as we know we can rely on your donation every month to help develop the communities we support. This is particularly important to Ace as our 10-15 year programmes demand that we have security and reliability of income to ensure that we can meet our long-term objectives. From Bronze level at £5 a month to the Diamond level at £200 we look forward to welcoming you to this important group.

Become a Friend of Ace through Payroll Giving

Payroll giving is a tax-free way to give to Ace Africa, which means your money goes further.

It is a HMRC scheme that allows employees to donate to any charity of their choice free of tax. The charity also does not need to claim any tax back on the donation as it is already included in the gift.

How does it work?

Payroll giving is the most tax-efficient way to give to Ace Africa.

Your regular gift is taken before tax is deducted from your pay, so money that would have gone to the Inland Revenue instead goes directly to Ace Africa: every £1 you donate will cost you 80p (based on 20 per cent rate of income tax); if you are a higher rate tax payer every £1 will cost you just 60p.

How do I become a payroll giver?

To sign up for payroll giving, please check with the payroll department of your company to make sure your employer has a payroll giving scheme in place.

If your company does have a scheme you will need to notify them of how much you want to give. Then simply complete and return a payroll giving registration form that Ace Africa will provide you.

If you have any questions about setting up a payroll gift, please contact us on info@ace-africa.org.
