Regular Giving


Regular donations give us the security of long-term funding and save on administration costs.

Payroll giving

Payroll giving is a simple, tax effective way to give to DSA from your pay before you are taxed—increasing the impact of your contribution!

For example: if you donated £10 per month to the DSA at the basic tax rate of 20%, we would receive a donation of £12.50. For the higher tax rate of 40% this increases to £16.66 and for the additional rate at 50% this increases to £20. This is because the donation is made prior to your tax being deducted.

Payroll giving helps the DSA plan for the future and there is no long-term commitment. Just tell your employer if you would like to change your donation level.

To sign up for payroll giving just contact your Human Resources Department and ask them about your company's payroll giving scheme. If your company does not have a scheme, please contact Sarah Terrazas at the DSA for assistance at 0333 121 2300* (not premium rate) or by email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
