When you are looking to support a charity, it’s important to find a way to donate that suits you and your lifestyle.
Alternative options include Payroll Giving and Giving Through Purchases. These types of regular donations require very little work to set-up but can make a huge difference to Music for All’s ability to effectively plan the delivery of our mission to promote the life-changing benefits of music making.
Payroll Giving / Give As You Earn
Payroll Giving is the most tax-efficient way to give to charity. The donations you make are taken directly from your gross pay – before tax is deducted. This gives you immediate tax relief on donations and means it costs you less to donate! You decide how much you want to give and you can even make additional tax-free donations at any time – e.g. if you receive a bonus.
To get started, simply let your employer know that you would like to donate to Music for All through Payroll Giving. Your employer will need to contact a registered Payroll Giving agency to set up a scheme and then the agency will manage passing on your employee donations to us.
Giving Through Purchases
Giving Through Purchasing platforms including Amazon Smile, Easy Fundraising and PayPal Giving Fund are an easy way to donate as you shop! Each of these fundraising platforms enable online shoppers to donate important funds to charities like us, so we can ensure we help even more disadvantaged music makers
Amazon Smile is a simple and automatic way for you to support Music for All every time you shop, at no cost to you. Millions of products are eligible for donations to charities and with every purchase, Amazon Smile will donate 0.5% of costs to your charity of choice. You simply select your charity of choice on your account and a donation is then made every time you purchase eligible products. Amazon Smile is available on your web browser and can be activated in the Amazon Shopping App. Read more on how Amazon Smile works here.
We also recommend adding the browser extension – Smilematic, which will redirect you to Amazon Smile automatically whenever you shop with Amazon to ensure every purchase you make will have a charitable impact!
