Payroll Giving Quality Mark
Every year, any employer running a Payroll Giving scheme with an Association of Payroll Giving Organisations’ member, can achieve a Payroll Giving Quality Mark. We are extremely proud to have been awarded the Diamond Quality Mark again for 2022.
The awards are graded based on % of employees giving from your total staff base, and calculated annually.
Launched in January 2006, the Payroll Giving Quality Mark recognises and rewards organisations for making Payroll Giving available to their staff.
Comprising a certificate and logo, as well as Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond Awards, the Quality Mark aims to provide UK charities with sustainable income streams by increasing participation in Payroll Giving.
Once you set up a Payroll Giving scheme, you will automatically receive a certificate as well as a logo for use on your letterheads, websites and other company literature.
The certificate and logo acknowledge that you have implemented Payroll Giving and demonstrate (both within your organisation and publicly) that you are committed to the good causes your employees care about.
