Payroll giving

Giving regularly through your pay is a great way to support our community. Talk to your employer about your gift. Or, if you’re an employer – speak to us.

Payroll Giving is a quick, easy, and tax-efficient way for both employees and employers to give to a charity. You choose an amount you’d like to donate each month and we receive a tax-free donation direct from your salary.

You can give as much as you like and change or cancel your donation at any time simply by informing your payroll department.

Pennies from Heaven

Simply donate the pennies from your payslip to Southampton Hospitals Charity.

Earn £850.34, then you keep the £850 and donate 34p to Charity. The most you can ever give is 99p each time you are paid, and on average this works out as £6 per year.

Signing up to Pennies from Heaven is simple, easy, and effective! Small change really can make a big change to our hospital.

For employees of University Hospital Southampton, we already have this scheme set up, and all you need is your payroll number. Further information can be found on Staffnet. If everybody signed up, we could raise £75,000 a year to enhance the care, experiences and outcomes.
