What is Workplace Giving?
Through Workplace Giving (sometimes called Payroll Giving), employees contribute a nominated portion of their pre-tax salary to their chosen charity and receive the tax benefit straight away, rather than waiting until the end of financial year. It is a joint relationship between employers, employees and charities.
Workplace Giving is the most effective way for working Australians to support charity. It’s a win-win-win for businesses, employees and charities.
Organisations can also match employee contributions in a variety of ways through Matched Giving. Matched Giving is another powerful and effective way for organisations to support SCHF. Some organisations match donations dollar for dollar, others choose to double match or match to a capped amount. This initiative is a great way to support and honour employees’ commitment to the causes they care about.
How it works
Employees select the amount they would like to donate to SCHF each pay cycle. This can be done through payroll or an online workplace giving platform.
The nominated donation amount is deducted from the employee's pre-tax pay, so the tax benefit is immediate reducing paperwork at tax time.
SCHF receives the donation and direct it to the area of greatest need. Every dollar helps us give sick kids the best possible care and treatment possible.
How can I get involved?
You can participate through your company payroll. Simply ask your employees to opt-in using a registration form. Once deductions commence, please email your deduction listing/remittance advice to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Some employer benefits of workplace giving include:
- 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
