Powys Pennies

What is it?

Powys Pennies is a simple idea which can raise money for local community projects and charities in Powys by collecting the pennies each month from your pay slips.

Who Can Take Part?

The scheme will be open to the majority of employees throughout the Public Service Board (PSB), and provides an easy, hassle free way of supporting local community projects and charities.

Each month, when you receive your net pay (your 'take-home' pay after deductions) we will round the amount down to the nearest pound. The pennies that are left over are then sent to community charities within Powys.

How it works!

Jack has a net monthly pay of £1160.42.

Powys Pennies would round it down to the nearest pound, deducting 42 pence from his net pay, leaving Jack with £1160.00.

The deducted 42 pence is donated to Powys Pennies for the support of charitable community activity in the county.

How much does it cost?

You would only be donating pennies each month so you would hardly notice the difference to your pay, but the collective contribution of donated pennies over a year, along with colleagues will make a big difference to Powys community charities.

What Happens to the Money?

Contributions gathered from the Powys Pennies scheme will be administered by PAVO in the form of a community grant. These relatively small grants to communities would add to the delivery of the One Powys outcomes for Powys' people.
