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 through payroll to a NPO, NGO or cause of their choice through the employer.
All NGOs, NPOs and causes – which are selected as beneficiaries – are first subject to due diligence and validation by CAF Southern Africa in order to ensure that donor contributions are secure, and that the beneficiary organisations’ accountability are assured.
Each ‘Give-As-You-Earn’ programme is tailored to the corporate where it is being implemented and options can include:
- A campaign name for the ‘Give-As-You-Earn’ programme, as well as dove-tailing it with a corporation’s current Corporate Social Investment Programme theme and Corporate Identity Guidelines.
- A option of either pre-selected (by the company) or free choice (by the employees) lists of NGOs, charities or causes for employees to support, or a mix of both.
- Further interaction with the selected validated NGOs, charities and causes for additional CSI programmes and events such as winter blanket drives, virtual and team volunteering events.
Additional benefits of Payroll Giving:
- All employees who donate through the payroll giving platform are entitled to receive PAYE tax relief on a monthly basis for donations to NGOS, charities and causes that are eligible in terms of Section 18A of the Income Tax Act (up to 5% of remuneration).
Offers a meaningful way for employees to give back who are unable to engage in employee volunteering activities or find such activities difficult and would rather contribute in another way.
