Who is it for?
All civil servants.
What do I get?
Payroll Giving is a smart and easy way to give to causes you care about. It allows you to donate, tax-free, direct from your pay each month to any UK registered charity. This means you can maximise the difference you make, as no tax is deducted and the money goes straight to your chosen charity. It also makes charitable donations simpler, as you don't need to use Gift Aid or make any entry on your tax return.
The MOD Civilian Payroll Giving Scheme, for employees in MOD Main, DE&S and SDA, is administered by Charities Trust, via our benefits partner Edenred. This makes it even easier to sign up and manage your donations online.
If you work in Dstl, please contact your Employee Experience Team for details of how to sign up to your Payroll Giving scheme. Other colleagues should follow the instructions below.
Before signing up to the Payroll Giving scheme, you should ensure you are familiar with 2021DIN01-131-Civilian Payroll Giving Scheme.
