Company giving

CPAG welcomes support from companies and their employees, and are keen to work in partnership with those who are committed to eradicating child poverty in the UK.

As a corporate partner, you will make a vital contribution to our work and benefit from the association with our trusted and respected name.

Make a company gift

As we are a registered charity (No. 294841), corporate gifts usually qualify for tax relief - meaning that charitable donations can be deducted from the total profits of your business when calculating corporation tax. There is no need to make a Gift Aid repayment claim because no tax has been paid. For more information see HMRC website.

There are a number of other ways your company can support CPAG's work. Your company could:

  • Sponsor a CPAG event or conference
  • Nominate us as your charity of the year
  • Offer payroll giving to your employees (see below)
  • Encourage your employees to fundraise on our behalf
  • Donate gifts in kind
  • Operate a matched giving scheme

We would be delighted to speak with you about how we can make a difference together.

Payroll Giving: information for employers

Payroll Giving is a simple scheme. Your employees will ask you to deduct regular charitable donations from their pay. You make the deduction after the calculation of national insurance contributions, but before deduction of Pay As You Earn tax. Important changes to the scheme are being planned.

You pay all the money you deduct to a HMRC-approved Payroll Giving agency. The agency will distribute the money to the charities selected by your employees.

You do not have to complete any tax forms and most of the administration cost is incurred by the Payroll Giving agency. Your costs should be very small and, if there are any, can be allowed as a deduction against your profits if you are a private company.

To set up a scheme, contact a Payroll Giving agency approved by the Inland Revenue or see the payroll giving pages on the HMRC website.
