BP and the BP Foundation have chosen the GivingForce Foundation as the Payroll Giving Agency (PGA) for the United Kingdom. The GivingForce Foundation will be processing payroll giving donations, also referred to as Give As You Earn (GAYE), from March 2020.
The GivingForce Foundation will also be processing Matching payments to beneficiaries for BP employees worldwide (excluding USA and Canada) from April 2020.
Wherever possible, the GivingForce Foundation will make payments to beneficiary organisations and send remittance details electronically. If you are a beneficiary organisation, you may be contacted by the GivingForce team requesting bank details.
If we don’t have a UK beneficiary organisation’s bank details, any payments will be sent by cheque. Cheque payments are only available in the UK – they are slower, have a higher risk of fraud/loss, and are more expensive to administer. We would much prefer to make all payments electronically.
All Payroll Giving donations and Matching requests are self-managed by employees using the GivingForce Portal – see www.givingforce.com for more details.
Note: payroll donations and matching requests prior to March 2020 will be processed by Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) – see www.cafonline.org for more details.
