Charity of the Year 

Celebrate our birthday with us and choose to support LCF throughout our 10th birthday year of 2015. Complete our pledge form to register your interest in supporting LCF as Charity of the Year. A member of the team will contact you to discuss your requirements and provide further information.


Payroll giving 

Payroll giving is a flexible scheme which allows anyone who pays UK income tax to give regularly and on a tax free basis to the charities and good causes of their choice. Payroll giving donations are deducted before tax, so each £1.00 you give will only cost you 80p.

It is simple and easy to set up a payroll giving scheme. There is little in the way of cost and administration, and you should be able to adapt your existing payroll system to operate the scheme. LCF has partnered up with County Durham Community Foundation – an approved Payroll Giving Agent – to manage the scheme.

Email us at info@leedscf.org.uk if your business is interested in offering payroll giving to your employees.
