Payroll Giving

Quality Marks

The Government supported Payroll Giving Quality Mark is a benchmarking system that recognises when an employer offers the scheme and signifies those businesses operating exceptional schemes.

Every employer that offers a Payroll Giving scheme to their employees is eligible to receive a Quality Mark. Employers that achieve set participation rates are eligible to apply for a Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum or Diamond Quality Mark.

Each year companies can apply to their contracted Payroll Giving Agency for their applicable Quality Mark. Contact details for the UK's main Payroll Giving Agencies and Professional Fundraising Organisations are here: http://www.apgo.org.uk/members/
