The petition to persuade the government to maintain the 10% top-up on payroll giving donations has not attracted many signatures from the voluntary sector so far.
A Payroll Giving Forum meeting today heard that only 700 employees of voluntary sector organisations had signed the 10% top-up petition in the past two months. The Forum is campaigning to encourage the Government to retain the 10% supplement after April 2003, when it is due to cease.
It might be a hard campaign to win, but it will not get anywhere if voluntary sector staff, and fundraisers in particular, do not demonstrate their interest in retaining this useful top-up.
You can download the Forum’s briefing on the 10% supplement from the Institute of Fundraising’s Web site, together with the petition form. Find them under the Tax Effective giving section of the site.
