Researching massive growth in giving. employees using the Payroll Giving scheme offered by their employer, the research also investigates the triggers or barriers that would influence individuals for and against participating in Payroll Giving.The survey showed that once individuals had been fully briefed on Payroll Giving, not surprisingly all thought it was an excellent way to support charity and would consider giving in this way. Low take-up rates for Payroll Giving were attributed to lack of awareness and communication of the scheme. Many respondents did not even know that their employer offered the scheme. Respondents also didn’t see Payroll Giving as an ‘easy’ way to give, or one that allowed them to opt out of communication with the charity of charities they were supporting.Feedback from charities was regarded as essential in order for donors to maintain the feel of a direct relationship with the cause(s) they are supporting.Amanda Delew, Director of The Giving Campaign, said: “The research is encouraging in showing how positive donors are about Payroll Giving. However, to boost take-up of the scheme, work needs to be done to improve communication between employers, charities and employees. For charities, it is a definite call to action to communicate with and further involve their Payroll Giving donors.”NOP’s research constituted four one and a half hour group discussions and 16 in-depth interviews, each 45-60 minutes long. A survey for The Giving Campaign confirms that wealthy donors are looking for stronger communication between themselves andthe charities that they support through Payroll Giving. NOP looked at the attitudes of high earners towards giving to charity through Payroll Giving.

Ugandan priest Anthony Ssenkaayi said he no longer wished his name to be used by businessman Joe Monaghan from Clonacore, Clones, Co Monaghan, to promote the collection of clothes at churches and homes around the country. Last year, it emerged another priest, Fr Charlie Beirne who lives in Mbarara in Uganda, had written to the bishop of Raphoe, Philip Boyce, and informed him he was no longer connected with Mr Monaghan and did not want any more clothes to be collected in his name. Fr Beirne said: “There are people who have been going around Ireland collecting secondhand clothing on my behalf. I wish to make it clear that no one has been authorised by me to do so.” Advertisement  25 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Another priest cuts link to ‘charity collector’center_img Tagged with: Ireland The priest, whose parents are Irish, said he had received a donation of ‚€3,000 from Mr Monaghan in 2001 and not a penny after that. He was shocked to learn that his name had been used for three years on leaflets asking for secondhand clothes around the country. Fr Ssenkaayi said Mr Monaghan flew him over to Ireland and put him up in a B&B in return for his calling parishes and bishops around the country promoting his clothes collection business. “In the agreement, they promised to give ‚€10,000 every year,” he said. “In my estimation of what I saw, this was peanuts compared to the clothes they collected from all over Ireland in my name.” Fr Ssenkaayi said he got ‚€5,000 from Mr Monaghan in 2004/2005, but had never received anything since. “I have pulled out of the deals with those men,” he said. “They made me put a voice message on the office mobile phone which had to remain plugged in the office, just to defend them – saying that I am happy with their work. “It was really using me and I hated it. I have not sent any information to the bishops about them, but I am doing so in due course,” he said. Mr Monaghan admitted that his company, Global Textile Shipping Ltd, sold secondhand clothes “principally to Eastern Europe and Russia”. He said he had been in business for 10 years, employing up to four people. Mr Monaghan is not prepared to say how much money his various enterprises had given to poor communities in Africa over the past 10 years, funded by donations from the public. “If I give money to charity that’s for me to know,” he said. Mr Monaghan insisted he was still friends with Fr Beirne and Fr Ssenkaayi. About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
