To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Payroll Giving, Telereal Trillium is supporting the nationwide social media campaign #payrollgivingat30.
Set up by the government in 1987, the Payroll Giving scheme is a tax efficient method of giving to any UK registered charity or charitable organisation from employees salary or pensions. Payroll Giving is proven to be one of the most sustainable ways to give to charity and has raised £2 billion for good causes over the past 30 years.
Telereal Trillium has made Payroll Giving available to its employees from day one – that’s 16 years of giving to employees’ charities of choice all across the UK. In the 2016/17 financial year alone, £111,490.28 was donated to charities through Telereal Trillium’s Payroll Giving and matching scheme.
In 2015, Telereal Trillium won the ‘Most Successful Sustained Scheme – Small Employer' category at the National Payroll Giving Excellence Awards. More information about Telereal Trillium's Payroll Giving and Give As You Earn scheme can be found here.
Last year, over 1 million people gave through their employers Payroll Giving scheme, donating £122.5 million to UK charities. Employers matched £7 million worth of their employee’s donations, bringing the gross amount donated through Payroll Giving to almost £130 million.
