Payroll Giving

Help The Royal Marsden improve the lives of those affected by cancer by donating straight from your salary.

What is Payroll Giving and how do I sign up?

Payroll Giving is a flexible scheme that allows you to make regular donations to the charities you care about, and it’s tax-free. Your gift is deducted before tax, so if you donate £1 it will only cost you 80p; the taxman pays the rest! Donating even just a small part of your salary helps us make a big difference to cancer patients here in the UK, and around the world.

Giving through your payroll helps provide us with a reliable income so we can budget and plan ahead more effectively. Your support means we can continue to fund life-saving research, develop treatments, and provide the best possible care for patients.

To start supporting us through Payroll Giving, follow the simple steps below:

  1. Sign up now using our form
  2. Hand this in to your Payroll Team
  3. Start making monthly donations!

How much can I donate?

You can give as much as you like, change the amount whenever you want, or even pause your donations for a while. Just talk to your HR or payroll department.

If you pay the standard tax rate:

Your donation Cost to standard rate taxpayer (20%) Cost to higher rate tax payer (40%)
£5 £4 £3
£10 £8 £6
£15 £12 £9
