Workplace giving, also known as Payroll Giving, is an easy, tax-efficient way for you to support Communities at Work. If you are an employee, you can donate money directly through your pay on a regular basis and receive a tax deduction as you give. If you are an employer, you can easily set up a payroll giving scheme to support your employees’ charitable giving.
By supporting workplace giving at your business or organisation, you will not only help us help the community but also enhance their reputation, fulfil your corporate social responsibility and/or boost staff morale and retention. Many employers also match their employee donations dollar for dollar!
“If just ten per cent of working Australians made a payroll charity donation of $5 a week, the Australian community would benefit by more than $260 million each year.” Ted Kerr, CEO of Australian Charities Fund.
