Direct Debit

You can make regular payments to COSMIC through your bank or building society account. Even a small sum paid monthly really mounts up over a year and is a very convenient way of giving to COSMIC. Once you've set up the Direct Debit, you don't have to do anything. Just download the Direct Debit form, sign it and return it to us at the address on the form. Click here for the form

You can also make your donation to us qualify for Gift Aid. This will increase the value of your Direct Debit donations to us by almost a third at no extra cost to you. To visit the HMRC Gift Aid page click here.

Payroll Giving

Payroll Giving is a simple and tax effective way to make regular donations to COSMIC.

Donations made through the Payroll Giving scheme are taken from your gross pay. This means that, for every £1 you donate to COSMIC, you will actually only pay 78p (or 60p if you are a higher rate taxpayer). The Inland Revenue will then give us the difference. Your donation costs you less, and COSMIC gets more. It's simple and effective.

For further information, either ask your employer to give you details, or visit the Inland Revenue's Payroll Giving page at
