Guardian News And Media Staff Fundraising

GNM staff can directly support grassroots projects on charity website The charity projects featured here have been recommended by existing GNM staff, but you can choose from hundreds of grassroots projects all over the world.

You can donate directly via the website, or team up with colleagues to raise funds together for a specific project that takes your fancy. Either way your donations will be tax-efficient. GNM will match-fund employees' fundraising £ for £  to a maximum of £100 per employee per financial year.

Finally, you also have the option of donating each month through GNM payroll. Please contact Sharath Jeevan at if you would like to donate regularly to a project through payroll giving. If you sign up to donate a minimum of £10 per month, GNM will donate a one off gift of £100 to your chosen charity. If your donation is between £5-£9.99 per month the charity will receive £50. This offer is only open to staff who are enrolling in the GNM scheme for the first time and can only be claimed once. Complete the payroll giving application form online here.
