Give As You Earn (GAYE)

Give as You Earn (GAYE) allows you to select your own chosen charity (or charities) and donate direct from your pay before tax on a regular basis. 

NHSBT runs a GAYE scheme through our benefits provider, Edenred. GAYE is not the same as the Pennies from Heaven scheme, through which you can donate the pennies from your payslips to NHSBT's chosen charity partner.

If you currently donate to charity regularly, or want to start, you may wish to consider doing this under Give as You Earn.

How does it work?  With Give As You Earn - the UK's largest payroll giving scheme - you can give directly from your pre-tax salary, so you will only be taxed on the balance of your salary once the deduction for your charity contribution has been made.

You decide how much you want to give each month and who you want to give it to. Then your donation comes out of your pay regularly each month before tax is calculated.

What are the benefits?  Your chosen charity benefits because they know they've got money coming regularly and can plan what to do with it in the long term.

You benefit because you don't pay any tax on the donations you make. If you’re a basic rate taxpayer, a gift of £5 only actually costs you £4 of your net pay.

How do I give?

Give As You Earn is flexible so you can give as much or as little as you like.
