Be a 9-5 Heart Hero

Donating through your payroll is simple, easy and helps hearts near you. 

So how does it work?
Payroll giving is a tax efficient scheme that allows you to make regular donations to Heart Research UK, straight from your salary.
As your donation is taken out before tax, a £10 per month donation will only cost you £8. 

The table below shows how little it will cost you each month to make a real impact to the work we do:

Your Pledge Actual Cost to you
(Standard rate taxpayer: -20%)

(or £60 annually)

This will allow us to print and distribute one Helping Little Hearts toolkit, which will support health professionals to develop exercise ‘prescriptions’ for children who have had heart disease or living with a long term heart condition.

£8 per month 

(or £90 annually)


(or £72 annually)

This  will pay for a talented young clinician to attend one of our Masterclasses

£10 per month

(or £120 annually)


(or £96 annually)

Will pay for one hour’s research into the prevention, treatment and cure of heart disease

£20 per month
