Set up payroll giving

Payroll Giving allows anyone who pays UK income tax to give regularly to charity, tax free.

A monthly, weekly or fortnightly donation to The Brain Charity will be taken from your salary each payday, before tax is deducted.

Because the money comes out of your gross pay, you pay less for your donation.

Regular donations also help us plan ahead, meaning our vital front line services can better support more people with neurological conditions.

Payroll giving is the most tax-efficient way to donate to The Brain Charity.
