About Us


Hands On Payroll Giving, formerly Hands On Helping, are the oldest Professional Fundraising Organisation in the UK. We make no charge to employers as we are funded by our charity partners.

Our aim is to provide all UK businesses with the tools to facilitate Payroll Giving, allowing their employees to support any charitable organisation they wish in a tax free way.

We are funded by the UK's top charities to promote Payroll Giving on their behalf. Only if an employee chooses to give to one of our charity partners are we paid a fee by the charity. This fee is released from separate fundraising budgets, and not as a direct percentage of the donation. This allows charities to raise funds in a risk-free way.

Our service to corporate partners is to facilitate donations to all charities; all donations are processed in the same way with all funds going directly to the causes employees select, no donations are ever passed to Hands On Payroll Giving.

To celebrate the worldwide day of giving we're topping up all new donations with a £10 gift (t&cs apply). To get involved simply Contact Us; we can provide employers with free web pages, graphics, template emails and posters to promote the campaign.


Please see some testimonials below from some of our charity partners, see our Case Studies section for corporate client feedback.

"Hands on Payroll Giving are an invaluable part of our payroll giving fundraising here at Cancer Research UK. Having worked together for over fifteen years, we have been impressed with the professionalism and flexibility which Hands on Payroll Giving display in the service they carry out for charities. The high quality of their work is evidence of their unswerving commitment to the fantastic causes they represent, and has brought in over £400k of donations to Cancer Research UK in the last financial year alone."
