Workplace Giving

By definition, workplace giving is a program in which employees have the ability to make regular donations to eligible charities through a payroll system. By using the payroll systems now commonplace in Australian workplaces, employers together with their employees can make small regular donations to charities.

Why Choose Workplace Giving?

Workplace Giving is a win-win-win for workers, employers and charities. No matter how small the amount, employees donate to their charities of choice from those included in their organisation’s Workplace Giving program. Employers enjoy greater staff engagement and retention.  Charities gain reliable, regular funds. Your donations will help us continue the fight against cancer.

The Benefits for Employees             

Through workplace giving, employees have the ability to make a pre-tax donation that can directly impact upon a cause close to their heart. Workplace Giving creates a positive working environment for the employee.

“Donating $20 each pay period through workplace giving will cost you only $13.70 and the Fiona Elsey Cancer Research Institute will receive the full $20.*

* Based on a marginal tax rate of 32.5%”

The Benefits for Employers       

Workplace Giving gives employers opportunity to engage their workforce by giving the option to make pre-tax charitable donations. This has shown to increase employee engagement and help shape a positive workplace culture.
