Workplace giving is a simple and effective way for employees to regularly donate to charities or organisations who are entitled to receive tax deductible donations.
Workplace giving is optional. Both the employee and the employer must agree to participate. Any employer who has one or more staff may start a workplace giving program.
Workplace giving allows charities such as the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife to receive donations as a lump sum from the employer, which reduces our costs as we only process one donation from each employer instead of individual donations from all participating employees.
In addition, individual employees get a tax deduction without needing a receipt, and the benefits without waiting for their tax return.
The employer can reward employees who contribute in this way to charities by matching their gifts, all in one easy process.
