If you are staff member at the University of Northampton, you need to register online via Charitable Giving, an HMRC approved Payroll Giving Agency, who will do the necessary administration to activate your regular gift.

Self-Invested Pension Funds (SIPPs) - SIPPs are a form of personal pension that give you more freedom to choose and manage your own investments.

Please consider the University of Northampton as a charity to benefit from your fund. Please, consult with your SIPP provider or your financial advisor if you are planning to do so.
