Workplace Giving is a highly effective way of making a difference to the lives of fellow Australians who have a disability, illness or disadvantage.
Workplace giving is a winner for employees, employers, and for charities alike, as it means low fundraising costs so more of the donation goes where it matters. It is a chance for employers to help their staff do something they really care about. It creates true corporate citizenship and it fosters a partnership between businesses and their employees, aiding long term staff retention.
An Australian Tax Office ruling allows you a reduction in your taxable income by the donated amount – so the deduction is from your ‘pre-tax’ income. This eliminates the need to collect receipts or wait until the end of the year to claim a tax refund. Meanwhile, the charity you have nominated benefits from 100% of donations for use in their essential services, stable funding and reduced fundraising costs.
