WHAT IS WORKPLACE GIVING?
Workplace giving is where employees give small, regular donations to a charity from their pre-tax pay. It’s a simple and effective way to make each dollar you donate go even further.
Why should my organisation start workplace giving?
Workplace giving is great for everyone involved - organisations, employees and charities.
- Employers enjoy greater staff engagement, retention, productivity, reputation and social impact.
- Employees give in a smarter, tax-effective way and build a sense of pride in their employer.
- Charities get low-cost, regular funds, access to valuable skills and strong partnerships.
Workplace giving is easy to set up
Employees can support the Rosemary Bryant Foundation and receive the tax benefit immediately. It’s easy to set up through your payroll with minimal administrative costs.
The following are providers of workplace giving programs and can provide you with assistance to set up a workplace giving program in your organisation.
Company matched donations
The most successful way to increase donations is for workplaces to match donations by their employees. This can be up to a capped amount so organisations can still manage their budgets effectively. Organisations can further enhance the impact of their workplace giving program by incorporating volunteering, skill-sharing and in-kind support.
Tax benefits of Workplace Giving
Workplace giving is a great way to make every dollar you donate go further and you receive the tax benefit immediately. With workplace giving there is also no need to go through the process of submitting tax deductible donations with your tax return – the benefit is immediate.
