Introducing GoodPAYE

What is GoodPaye?

GoodPAYE is a Payroll Giving Platform that empowers people to change the world while they work, and prides itself on being the simplest, most efficient and most impactful way for employees of any business to donate to their chosen charities straight from their salary, tax-free and hassle-free.

Being 100% charity-owned and cofounded by Crisis, GoodPAYE understand the desire for change and the difference we can all make when giving works and have developed new technology using digital-led strategies to take the hard work out of workplace giving.

Liz Choonara (Interim Director of Enterprise and Innovation at Crisis) explains how Venture Studio came to collaborate:

“The business spun-out of Good Innovation, the Social Impact Innovation consultancy. What makes GoodPAYE unique is that it is a joint venture between Barnardo’s, Crisis, The Royal British Legion, RNIB and WaterAid. Their aim is to increase the accessibility and uptake of payroll giving. Through their tech-enabled approach they aim to double the number of payroll givers by 2030 and to raise an additional £150m for charities across the UK.”


What is payroll giving?

Payroll Giving is a long-standing government scheme that allows employees to make charitable donations directly from their salary (gross pay/pension) before it is taxed. GoodPAYE has shaken up the way Payroll Giving traditionally works, making it far easier to use for employers, employees and

their chosen charities.

Liz continues on hopes for the future:

“The Venture Studio from Crisis is on a mission to invest in, build and scale ventures that accelerate the end of homelessness. Alongside Crisis policy and research, direct service delivery and place-based work, the Venture Studio and its community of entrepreneurs is a powerful force to achieve that mission.

GoodPAYE makes it easy for companies to offer payroll giving to their employees. Through their innovative platform, employees can donate to their chosen charities in a tax efficient way whilst getting insights into the impact of their donations. We are excited about the opportunity this holds for Crisis and the sector overall to diversify income and to engage with supporters in a new way.”
