If you choose to donate more than €250 a year (or €21 a month) through your payroll, your donations can have a double impact

Khala Ndlovu, 8, in his classroom in southern Zimbabwe.  Khala's mother Pati, 37, and her market garden group are proud that it took them just three months to construct and begin producing food in their garden, once Christian Aid's partner Dabane Trust provided training, materials and equipment.  Pati says, "The garden crops have changed my life, and that of my family. Now I can afford school uniforms for all my kids; before they would go to school without wearing a uniform.”

About us


Payroll Giving in Action is a professional fundraising organisation whose primary aim is to raise awareness and take up of the Payroll Giving scheme, therefore increasing donations to as many different charities that require our help. PGA’s founding principles are to recruit quality donations lasting for many years for as many charities as possible.

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.

OFFICE STAFF/CHARITY LIASON OFFICERS: Efficient and courteous team dealing with company meetings, arrangement of promotions, charity and company statistics, expertise in charity awareness and company liasons.

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.
