Just download the Direct Debit Form below, complete and sign it, and return it to us at the address on the form.
You can also make your donation to us qualify for Gift Aid. This will increase the value of your Direct Debit donations to us by almost a third at no extra cost to you.
Payroll Giving is a simple and tax effective way to make regular donations to COSMIC.
Donations made through the Payroll Giving scheme are taken from your gross pay. This means that for every £1 that you donate to COSMIC, you will actually 78p (or 60p if you are a higher rate taxpayer), the Inland Revenue will then give COSMIC the difference. Your donation costs you less and COSMIC gets more. It’s simple and effective.
