Payroll giving

BT’s payroll giving scheme is one more way employees can use to support charities of their choice.

The scheme allows employees to give tax efficiently directly from pay. BT covers its admin costs.

In 2010, BT employees gave more than £2.5 million directly to their own chosen charities this way.

This was boosted with a further £1 million donation from BT.

BT runs the scheme in the UK, the United States, Spain and Ireland and it’s used by more than 11,800 employees.

A sample press release for charities to promote their work and the support they have received from BT and its people is available below.
