Payroll Giving


Payroll Giving or 'Give-As-You-Earn' is an international programme developed by CAF UK and offered and facilitated locally by CAF Southern Africa since 2002.


It provides simple mechanisms for employees to donate from their salaries to a NGO, charity or cause of their choice. All NGOs, charities and causes selected as beneficiaries are first subject to due diligence/validation by CAF Southern Africa to ensure that donor contributions are secure and that the beneficiary organisations accountability is assured.
