Donate from your salary
The admirable characteristics of your great Movement are still your hallmarks and because of them you still stand out from the rest. I am proud to be associated with the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.

If you are a UK employee, this option represents a tax-effective and time-efficient way to support the work of WAGGGS by making regular donations directly from your pay.
You will have to authorize your employer to deduct a regular donation from your salary. All donations are taken before tax is calculated, so a monthly £12.82 donation actually costs you only £10, saving you the £2.82 in tax (based on basic rate tax currently 22 per cent).
Payroll Giving may require that your company or organization’s HR department operates a special scheme. If you would like advice on how to set up a Payroll Giving Scheme, contact us directly on firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Fund Development team on 020 7794 1181.
Both you and the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts benefit from payroll giving
- You can give any amount and can alter or stop your donation at any time - just give your payroll department one month’s notice.
- Regular giving keeps our administration and fundraising costs down so more of your money will be used directly on developing Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting worldwide.
- Regular income means we can plan and develop our services to girls and young women much more effectively.
- If you’re a higher rate taxpayer in the UK, you can personally claim tax relief on your standing order donations by using Gift Aid. What’s more WAGGGS will receive an extra 28p for each pound you give directly from the Inland Revenue at absolutely no cost to you.
