Gifts in kind

Would your company consider offering The Encephalitis Society a product or service that would save us money on the costs of running the organisation? Or perhaps you could offer raffle prizes, auction items or merchandise to go in the goody bags we give out at our events?

If so, we’d love to hear from you. Please contact [email protected] or call us on +44 (0)1653 609 912

Payroll giving

Payroll Giving is one of the easiest and most flexible methods of giving to Charity. The Encephalitis Society has an optional Payroll Giving Scheme so that any employee of any company can make a monthly donation to us providing their company is signed up for payroll giving.

An agreed amount is deducted from your gross salary via the payroll giving agency and is sent to the Encephalitis Society. This monthly donation is taken pre-tax and is shown on your payslip. If you are a basic rate tax-payer , a monthly donation of £1 will show up on your payslip as a pre-tax deduction of £1 but will only cost you 80p.

Why is it such a good way to give?

Tax Efficient – your donation is deducted pre-tax which means for every £1 you donate it only costs you 80p and the tax authorities pay the rest!

(Note: the payroll giving agency deducts a small administration fee)

If your employer doesn't already have a Payroll Giving Scheme in place, don't worry- it's quick and easy to set up. Just email us or phone us on 01653 692583 and we'll tell you how.

If you are interested in fundraising as a company or individual we'd love to hear from you. Please contact [email protected] or call +44 (0)1653 609 912
