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.


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 that you donate to COSMIC, you will actually 78p (or 60p if you are a higher rate taxpayer), the Inland Revenue will then give COSMIC the difference. Your donation costs you less and COSMIC gets more.  It’s simple and effective.
