The Association of Payroll Giving Organisations (APGO) which represents the key players in the Payroll Giving sector is delighted to announce that the Payroll Giving Quality Marks are now a trademarked product of the APGO and officially endorsed by Government. Awarded annually in certificated format to employers, in recognition of their promotion and support of Payroll Giving, the Quality Marks are comprised of the Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond levels.

The trademarking of the Quality Marks is a major achievement for the APGO who now have sole ownership of this benchmarking accreditation. Any other stakeholders in the Payroll Giving sector wishing to award these Quality Marks to employers with whom they work will need to make an application to the APGO.

Panikos Efthimiou, Chair of the APGO, said:

“We are thrilled to be making this announcement today. All employers have an opportunity to be the proud owner of a trademarked product with government backing – this year the signatory on our certificates is the Minister for Sport, Gambling and Civil Society, the Rt Hon Stuart Andrew MP. In 2022/23 Payroll Giving generated over £135million of vital income for the Charity sector. With this announcement today we also want to thank all employers and employees for their magnificent support in providing regular sustainable income to charities across the UK. We would also encourage all other stakeholders involved in promoting Payroll Giving to join the APGO at this exciting time”.
