Payroll Giving

Payroll Giving (also called Give As You Earn) is a way for employees to give to charity direct from your salary. Donations are made before tax, so employees not only give to charity, you pay less tax.

Special Occasions Donations

Why not celebrate your special occasion differently? Instead of a gift, you could ask your friends and family to donate to Once Upon a Smile on your behalf.

Tribute Funds

If you’re planning your event in memory of someone special, you might like to set up a Tribute Fund.


A gift to Once Upon a Smile in your will, means you are leaving a family with special memories that will last a lifetime. Your gift will help make sure we continue supporting as many bereaved families as possible.
