ParaQuad NSW supports people with a spinal cord injury and is a charity that supports life choices after spinal cord injury, particularly those who have received injuries due to a car or sporting accident.
We are lucky in life and don’t know what tomorrow can bring. I am fortunate to have what I need, so this birthday, please give me an extra reason to celebrate by your donation.

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.

If you’d like to choose ParaQuad NSW as your nominated charity for the Workplace Giving Program in your organisation, check with your Finance Department or HR Department to find out how you can make this possible.
