What is Workplace Giving?

Put simply, workplace giving allows employees to make regular charitable donations from their pre-tax pay through your employer’s payroll system.

Why Participate in Workplace Giving?

Convenient, workplace giving eliminates the need for employees to collect receipts or wait until the end of the year to claim a tax refund.

Cost effective, giving from pre-tax income means donations cost employees less, while charities like us receive the full benefit of their donation.

Collaborative, workplace giving is unique in its ability to bring together employees, employers and the charities they choose to support. When employees and employers combine their donations, workplace giving is living proof that  small change can make a big difference and deliver significant benefits to the community. Australian Charities Fund research highlights this collaboration enhances employee morale, loyalty and pride in their employer.

What are the Benefits of Workplace Giving?

Workplace giving is transparent and trustworthy for employees and employers, and avoids high fundraising costs for charities. The benefits participating employees say they enjoy most include:

  • Donations are easy, convenient and tax effective.
  • Donations are affordable – you can give as much or as little as you like.
  • Employees have the chance to make a difference by connecting with their employer and fellow workmates through the collective impact of their donations.

Add Gawura to your Workplace Giving Program

Workplace giving is one of the most cost effective and impactful ways to donate. If your organisation currently has a workplace giving program, please consider recommending Gawura if it is not already on your list.

If your organisation does not currently have a workplace giving program, now is the perfect time to discuss this with your employer!
