Payroll giving

Make a difference to Young Lives vs Cancer with a regular tax-free gift direct from your salary.

What is it?

To fight for young lives against cancer, we depend on a reliable, regular income. That’s why a regular donation through your salary is one of the best ways for you to help us.

Sign up today using the online Payroll Giving form to start a weekly or monthly donation, and make a real difference to the lives of children and young people with cancer.

Alternatively, print off a PDF Payroll giving sign up form, fill it in and send it back to us following the instructions on the form.

Why sign up to Payroll Giving?

Payroll Giving allows you to give directly to charity from your salary before tax is deducted. This means if you give £10 a month to Young Lives vs Cancer and are a basic rate taxpayer, the gift will only cost you £8 from your net pay. If you pay a higher rate of tax, £10 a month will only cost you £6 from your net pay but in each case, Young Lives vs Cancer would still receive £10.

Payroll Giving is easy to set up and you can change your donation at any time by informing your HR department at work.
