Give As You Earn

GAYE,  also known as Payroll Giving, is an easy way to make a regular donation to the Beacon Centre via your salary. It’s a flexible, tax efficient way for you to make a difference.

Your donation is taken from your salary before tax is deducted which means it costs you less and HM Revenue & Customs gives us the tax instead, meaning that your monthly donation could be worth up to 40 per cent more to us.

Here’s an example:
At the basic rate of tax, if you opt to give £5 a month, only £4 will be deducted from your pay, but Beacon Centre for the Blind will receive £5.
