The Payroll Giving Special Interest Group exists to bring together all those involved with Payroll Giving to share information, best practice and new ideas, as well as debate current challenges.
It also provides a great opportunity to network with other sector colleagues whether from charities, professional fundraising organisations (PFO's), agencies or industry bodies.
We meet throughout the year and hold a number of networking events, training courses and conferences.
Information about forthcoming meetings and events will be announced on these pages, so please visit this page regularly to keep up to date.
If you would like any advice or support on your Payroll Giving activities, feel free to contact any member of the Committee using the contacts below. You can also find a range of useful documents and websites here.

A few nice quotes from some members:
"Its quite easy to hear about payroll giving from the charity perspective when you work in the sector, but it's not often you get to see it from the company perspective. It's also really refreshing to see passion for charity in the corporate sector."
"The tips I picked up can be used in pitches to companies/partners to tell them about why payroll giving is good for them."
"It was inspiring to hear the passion of company reps to succeed with their payroll giving. The event gave me some ideas to talk to our corporate partners and motivated me to get on and do it!"
