Infacilitating this process, the employer is perceived as supporting causes which are important to each member of staff.”Justgiving contrasts its online service to the current paper-based system used by many payroll givers. Currently if employees want to participate in a payroll giving scheme, they usually have to complete a form by hand, pass the information tothe human resources or finance department where the information will be manually entered into the company’s payroll system. In medium to large organisations, says Justgiving, this often requires the services of at least one full time employee. Justgiving points out that its service will therefore offer administrative savings for medium to large companies. In addition, “it will make it easier for smaller organisations to offer payroll giving in the first place.”Justgiving enables one off and regular donations to be made so forexample, if an employee is running a marathon, all sponsorship of theindividual by colleagues can easily be processed through payroll giving.Employees can review and modify their charity choice in response to emergency appeals, a key event in their own life such as a wedding or birthday, or to support individual sponsorship of friends or family. Justgiving say that their solution is “simple to integrate into an organisation’s existing systems and no specialist intranet is needed.” Justgiving is offering free set up for organisations who sign up for itspayroll giving solution before 31 October 2003. The full price after thistime will be £12,500.
