Payroll Giving  - How to make a donation to charity from each pay

Thankyou Payroll makes donating to New Zealand charities from your payroll easy.

To set up an automatic donation from each pay...

  1. Go to the employees 'giving' tab in their profile.
  2. Select whether or not the employee wishes to donate anonymously.
  3. Start typing the name of the registered New Zealand Charity that they would like to donate to. A suggestion list will appear from which you can then select the charity that your employee wants to donate to.
  4. Pick the amount they would like to be deducted from each pay.
  5. Click Update to save this setting.

How to set up an automatic donation


If the charity you are looking for does not come up in the list, then they are not set up with us. Send us an email with the charity name to see if we can add them.

If your pay is fortnightly but your employee wants to donate weekly, put in the total amount that should be deducted from each pay- twice the weekly amount. Remember the donation amount will be per pay and not per week.

Payroll Giving is an easy way to support the causes your employees care about!

It is awesome for all involved.

For the charities, payroll giving lowers the cost of fundraising and provides a steady revenue stream.

For employees, the donations they make are deducted before they receive their pay. The process is seamless and they receive an immediate tax credit of 33% of the donation value.
