Government offers grants to payroll givers

The government has launched a grant to encourage more small businesses to take up payroll giving. Any employer with less than 500 staff is eligible for a cash incentive of £500 when they set up a scheme. As an additional incentive, the government will match the first £10 donated by each employee for the first six months. The programme is administered by the Institute of Fundraising and Business in the Community.
