Payroll Giving provides charities with regular, reliable donations, allowing them to plan ahead and budget for the future.

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.

Enthusiastic yet light hearted presentations to inform staff on how payroll giving works, leaving the choice of charity to the employee.  Expert in all Ireland and UK based charities.

DEVELOPMENT TEAM: Team of staff expert in the field of generating new business and ensuring expert continuity and service is received once Payroll Giving is entered into.

Payroll Giving in Action are members of the Institute of Fundraising and IOF Payroll Giving forum. 

Although Payroll Giving has been around for several years now, many charities have found it difficult to use the scheme as a fund raising mechanism. The obvious benefit of receiving donations directly from wages is offset by the considerable cost of recruiting people to the scheme through the distribution of literature and by giving presentations nationwide.

In the past, charities have individually attempted to generate payroll support, often with disappointing results. The idea behind PGA is to represent as many charities simultaneously as possible by pooling the resources required to gain the benefits outlined above.


By representing a number of wide-ranging charities, employees feel they have been given the freedom to make their own choice. Promotions are much more cost-effective when several charities are represented simultaneously, and in this way charities can increase their Payroll Giving support at an affordable cost.

PGA does not guarantee to raise funds for specific charities, the degree of response is entirely dependant upon employee choice, but it ensures all promotions are completely impartial.
