Get involved

Signing up for payroll giving means you can donate to the causes you care about, directly from your salary.

If you’re looking for a simple way to support WaterAid, signing up to payroll giving could be the answer.

The scheme works by deducting your donation directly from your salary. Best of all, it’s tax free – so every £1 you give will only cost you 80p (or if you're a higher rate tax payer, 60p). 

That means your gift will go even further in getting clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene to everyone, everywhere – and the difference really does add up. 

More than 5,000 of our supporters have already taken part in the scheme, raising an incredible £8 million so far!  

Sign up between 1 November and 31 January and your first three months will be matched pound for pound by the UK government. The UK government will match donations up to a total of £5 million.

Setting up payroll giving at your company

Payroll giving is great for your company’s image and increasing staff morale, retention and recruitment.

The scheme also boosts your charity giving easily (and at little cost to you), while letting you see the amount of money your staff are raising.

To offer the scheme, employers need to be registered with a Payroll Giving Agency (PGA).

It's easy and free to set up. To find out more,
