Can you afford to donate one hour of your time?

Just one hour of your time could make a huge difference to so many people in difficult situations throughout the world.

Oxfam Ireland

Maureen Khomba from Malawi has received a cow thanks to Oxfam supporters. As well as providing milk for her family, including her six children, the cow also gives her milk to sell to earn some extra income for her family."I sell up to 16 litres of milk a day... I believe that my children have the prospect of a bright future because I manage to send them to school because of the money that I earn from selling milk", Maureen says.

What your donation could do:

3 will pay for a life saving bucket. Specially designed to keep water safe and clean, with unique bases to make them easier to carry on the head, these buckets play a vital role in emergencies all over the world. And for those living long-term in camps, your gift will provide good-old fashioned jerry cans too 

6 will pay for drinking water for a family. People often needlessly die from water-borne diseases such as cholera and typhoid in the developing world. This is easily prevented with clean water.

Your gift will save lives.

Payroll Giving - working for a good cause

Easy way to give.

Payroll Giving is an easy way for you to contribute to charity on a regular basis through payroll deductions.

This method of giving reduces administration overheads for the charities, benefiting those who need our help most.

By donating a fixed amount from your monthly salary - in addition to donations from your colleagues using this scheme - you can make a big difference to the charities and their areas of work.

This also gives the charities the ability for longer term planning in its programmes, by knowing how much money will come in every month.

Double Impact:

If you choose to donate more than €250 a year (or €21 a month) through your payroll, your donations can have a double impact. The charities can claim the tax back on the donations.

The Revenue Commissioners allow Irish charities to claim back the tax portion on individual donations of €250 or more, in any tax year, as long as you're a PAYE only tax payer.

An annual donation of €250 could generate an extra

€62.50 at the standard 20% PAYE rate.

€173.72 at  the higher 41% PAYE rate.
