Another way in which you can extend the reach of your support of LSE is through the Give as You Earn (GAYE) scheme. It is completely tax free and allows an employee to give a regular or single gift from their salary before tax is deducted to the charities of their choice.
Please complete this form, print it out and send it to your human resources or payroll department.
This scheme means:
- Gifts made through Payroll Giving are taken directly from the gross pay, giving the benefactor immediate tax relief at the highest rate of tax for which they qualify
- For instance, every £10 you donate will only cost you £8 as you save £2 at the basic tax rate and higher tax rate payers will pay only £6
- The School can better plan its activities sustainably, knowing the LSE Annual Fund is getting regular donations
- You are better able to keep track of your giving
To make contributions to the LSE Annual Fund, the charity details for the GAYE form are as follows:
Commission number: Inland Revenue No. X2401
LSE Annual Fund
London School of Economics and Political Science
London WC2A 2AE
We are very grateful for you choosing to donate tax-efficiently via payroll giving. As we use a third party (CAF) to process this, there may be a delay between you filling in the form and your donation coming out of your pay. There is also sometimes a delay of several weeks before the Annual Fund receives your donation once it is set up, but as soon as we receive the funds, we will write to acknowledge receipt and to thank you for your generous support.
