“If just 10% of working Australians donated $5 per week through their pay, an additional $260 million would be generated each year for the community.”*

Workplace Giving, or Payroll Giving, is a simple and effective way to regularly donate to a charity and make a direct difference in the local community.

Workplace Giving allows employees to donate a small amount each pay period through their salary and receive an immediate, automatic tax deduction. The pre-tax donation eliminates the need to retain receipts and claim them in their annual tax return. It is easy, convenient and efficient.

Generally, the donation amount will be a fixed amount that will be deducted from your salary or wages on each pay day. Your employer then pays the donation directly to the charity. Workplace Giving does not affect the way your gross income, super guarantee payments or fringe benefits are worked out.

For more information about how Workplace Giving will help your local community please contact YWCA Canberra on 02 6175 9900, or email
