Harrisons Fund

how your company could help

Why support Harrison’s Fund?

We are not the largest charity we are only small, but our goal is huge.

We want to eradicate a disease that is currently 100% fatal to all the children born with it - Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

Unlike many other charities in this area, our goal is not to offer palliative care solutions, but to help find a cure for the disease, and we need your help to do so.

We know that every organization has its own objectives, markets and target audiences for its products and services, but providing ways for your staff to help raise money for a good cause can be a tremendous morale booster and a great way to increase motivation and satisfaction within your colleagues.

If you’d like talk to about how your business can support Harrison’s Fund or to find out more about our work to find a cure for Duchenne, please email us or call us on 07887 571654 or email Alex at alex@harrisonsfund.com)

Payroll Giving

Payroll Giving (also known as Give As You Earn) means that your employees can donate tax-free to Harrison’s Fund through their pay packet.

When an employee donates from their gross wages, their chosen charity receives the tax on the donation as well, making the gift worth up to 40% more.

Payroll Giving is the most tax-efficient way to give to charity, and is the only way a 40% or 45% rate taxpayer can donate their full tax on a donation. Gift Aid for example is only ever a standard rate (25%) tax-free donation.

Benefits to your company

There are very real business benefits to offering Payroll Giving to your employees.

Payroll Giving provides you with opportunities to:

  • Enhance your reputation as a socially responsible organisation
  • Make it easy for your employees to give tax efficiently, and demonstrate your commitment to the causes they want to support
  • Increase your the charitable giving from your employees with little cost or effort. Once Payroll Giving is in place, you can monitor the level of donations that your employees have achieved
  • Generate a valuable, sustainable income stream for Harrison's Fund
