Charitable trust funds more than triple in 10 years, CAF reports
Payroll giving has also increased, it reports. Last year £81m was donated to charity by the half a million employees who give every month through the “Give As You Earn” scheme. This is an increase of 153% on 1999/2000 when £31m was given in this way.
Over 3,000 companies run a payroll giving scheme and many match the donations made, often doubling the amount that goes to their employees’ chosen charities.
