The Big Charity Whip Round rounds down the participating employees’ net pay to the nearest pound, and the remaining pennies are donated direct to charity.If the payslip reports a monthly salary of £850.33, the employee would receive £850, with the 33p being donated to charity. The system ensures that no employee ever donates more than 99p per day.Peter O’Hara, Managing Director of Workplace Giving UK, is launching the scheme this week at Employee Benefits Live and the CIPP Conference.

We therefore wanted to come up with a simple, low cost solution which would deliver the most money to a company’s charity partner.”He added that companies trialling the system are reporting a 30% engagement rate amongst employees. “So a workforce of 5,000 could be raising in excess of £9,000 per year just from their odd net pennies” he said.Workplace Giving UK will pass on all donor details to the beneficiary charities to allow Gift Aid to be reclaimed and for charities to contact their supporters.
