An easy, tax-effective way to give monthly so it costs you less to give more!

About Payroll Giving

Payroll giving enables you to give regularly to Rainbow Trust from your gross salary (before income tax is deducted). It is simple, quick and effective and guarantees a regular flow of funds to support families who have a seriously ill child.

Your donation is an easy, tax-effective way to give monthly to Rainbow Trust so it costs you less to give more! For example, if you pay tax at the basic rate of 20%, it will only cost you £4, yet Rainbow Trust receives £5 as the tax is included.

Donate to Rainbow Trust from your payroll in three easy steps:
