Donating through payroll

You work hard for your money; now let your money work harder for you and Meningitis Now. Support us through your salary or pension scheme. Payroll giving (donating through your salary) is a great way to make regular donations to Meningitis Now. And the great news is that donations are tax free and it actually costs you less to give us more.

If you are a higher rate taxpayer, you can also reclaim additional tax relief against your donations on the difference between the higher rate of tax at 40% or 45% and the basic rate of tax at 20%. You can then choose to donate this additional money to us.

How your donation helps us

Giving regularly through your salary enables us to plan and carry out our vital work, safe in the knowledge that our funding is secure. By donating through your salary, you are making a difference to our fight against meningitis in the UK - saving lives and rebuilding futures through research, awareness and support.
