Payroll Giving Quality Mark

The Payroll Giving Quality Mark is a government-supported accreditation which recognises and rewards organisations of all sizes for offering and promoting Payroll Giving to their employees.

There are five levels of Quality Mark – Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond. Organisations are given points for employee participation, paying the admin charges, matching donations, hosting events and running digital promotions. Organisations who achieve a Quality Mark will receive a certificate and logo to use on their company materials.

How to apply:

You will receive a survey to complete towards the end of the financial year from your Payroll Giving Agency or Professional Fundraising Organisation.

You will need to answer a few questions in order for them to be able to assess the quality of your Payroll Giving Scheme.

In late June/early July your Payroll Giving Agency will issue you with your Quality Mark logo and certificate (usually digitally).
