Payroll Giving shows you care about your employees. It's an easy (and free!) way to engage and empower workforces. There are loads of ways to internally celebrate success (which we can help with), as well as the Government Quality Marks and the National Payroll Giving Excellence Awards.

  • Government Quality Mark Award

    The Quality Marks are a bench marking accreditation recognises companies of all sizes for offering Payroll Giving. The Government supported Giving Quality Mark comprises of a certificate and logo that can be used on corporate literature.

    There are five levels of Quality Mark - Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond. Organisations are given points for employee participation, paying the admin charges, matching donations, hosting events and running digital promotions.

    To assess which level you organisation might receive, please see the Quality Mark calculator, we can offer guidance on how to achieve higher levels. Please contact us for more information.

    So, how does it work?

    • You will receive an email towards the end of the financial year for the relevant information from us (or your Payroll Giving Agency or Professional Fundraising Organisation if it isn't us!).
    • You'll then answer a few questions so that we can assess the quality of your Payroll Giving Scheme.
    • In late June/early July your Payroll Giving Agency will issue you with your Quality Mark logo and certificate (usually digitally), via the email address you've supplied.
  • National Payroll Giving Excellence Awards

    This annual occasion celebrates employers' commitment to Payroll Giving and the benefits to UK charities. The awards are split into various categories, including ‘Best Launch of a New Scheme' and ‘Best Sustained Scheme'. We can assist with applying for the awards.
