Give As You Earn (GAYE)
Did you know that you could give to any of your favourite charities by having a small deduction made from your monthly salary?
Did you know that by giving in this way your charity would automatically also receive your tax without having to go through the costly admin of claiming it back?
Workplace Giving is a simple, efficient and flexible scheme, which allows employees here at UCL, paid through PAYE, to give on a tax-free basis, to the charity/ies of their choice.
A donation of £10.00 per month will only cost you £8, for a standard rate taxpayer, or £6 if you are higher rate.
All employees can choose how much they want to give and are able to increase or decrease the amount, or even stop if you wish, at any time
So which charities can you give to?
Deciding to actually give is the easy part. However, choosing which cause benefits from your donation may be a tougher decision to make. There are thousands of worthy causes ready to accept your donation and you can donate to any of them!
Did you know that UCL itself has charitable status and you could choose to join over 120 of your colleagues who donate in excess of £80K per annum to support our institutional priorities, for example student support, or wherever the need is greatest.
Workplace Giving UK, an organisation we are working with to promote the scheme, are able help with this decision.
How do you become a Workplace Giving donor?
Should you decide to give to UCL and to make the gift online, please be aware that UCL is not included in the dropdown list of charities – instead select ‘or specify your own’, enter UCL, and use our exempt charity number X6243 to complete your gift.
