As Newquay Zoo is a registered charity you can select us as your chosen charity to receive an automatic donation from your staff's salary. This is an easy, tax effective way to support our conservation work and helps us as a charity to plan our activities knowing we are receiving regular donations.

Donating directly from their salary means they can give to us before they are taxed, making their gift worth even more. Newquay Zoo benefits directly by receiving the donation from them, plus the tax they would have paid on it from the Inland Revenue.

Example donation
  Cost to your staff Amount Newquay Zoo receives as a donation
20% taxpayer £12 £15
40% taxpayer £9 £15
50% taxpayer £7.50 £15

Any employee or pensioner paid under the Pay As You Earn scheme can donate direct from their salary.

A guide for your staff as to how to do it:

  • Making a regular monthly donation is simple to organise. All you have to do is decide how much you want to donate each month and this can be deducted automatically each pay day.
  • Check with your payroll department that your employer is registered to participate. If not they can register with ease by signing a contract with a Government approved agency, such as Charities Aid Foundation by telephoning 01732 520019.
  • Once your employer has registered, you just inform them of how much you would like to donate each month.
