Get started with payroll giving

Payroll is by far the easiest way for your people to donate to their favorite charities through your workplace giving program, and that’s critical to driving engagement. Whether it’s a one-time or recurring donation, giving through payroll allows your people to donate any amount, big or small, directly from their next paycheck — so anyone can take part in your program.

Drive participation by making giving easier

  • One of the most powerful ways to boost engagement

The easier you can make giving for your employees, the more likely they’ll be to do it through your program, and payroll is as easy as it gets.

  • Include everyone

Not every employee has a credit card, PayPal or Apple Pay, but they all get a paycheck. By giving more people an opportunity to do good, you’re inviting them to feel part of something bigger.

  • Integrate seamlessly

Payroll through Spark is set up to work with your company’s specific payroll schedule. It can be set up by country, employee status (full-time, contractor, etc.) or other criteria, and CSV exports from Spark will integrate seamlessly with your payroll system.

  • Engage globally

With thirteen currencies available in Spark payroll, you can create the most global (and local!) experience for your employees around the world, so everyone feels included regardless of their location.

  • Save charities money

Since payroll doesn’t come with merchant fees, like credit cards do, recipient charities receive more money through payroll donations on the Benevity platform than through any other method (including their own websites!).

  • Help people budget

Your employees can add funds to their Giving Accounts through payroll now to donate later, so they’ll have money available for unplanned opportunities, like disaster relief or a colleague looking for support for a cause.

  • Get automated tax receipts

When your people make donations through payroll on the Benevity platform, they can quickly and easily download a tax receipt at the end of the year for all eligible donations.

  • Get data to inform strategy

When your employees set recurring donations through payroll, you can see which causes they’re passionate about and how much they’re giving, and you can use that data to forecast donation volume and inform your strategy and budget.
