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 the world a better place. Many businesses boost the effect of their staff’s donations through in-kind giving.
How does workplace giving help your Inner West community?
Payroll giving is one of the most effective ways of helping your community and neighbours that need your support. By giving regular donations, NNC can build sustainable, long-term support for vulnerable people throughout the Inner West. As payroll giving isn’t tied to any particular donation, NNC can tailor support to each person, with careful consideration of their unique needs.
Why choose workplace giving?
As a company, workplace giving powerfully demonstrates corporate social responsibility and a commitment to causes employees care deeply about. It creates a more connected, passionate workplace, forging connections between management and staff. Workplace giving improves staff retention and makes your company more desirable to job-seekers.
Workplace giving is easy to set up, low-cost and low-effort. Your company’s payroll team is responsible for contacting and providing donations to NNC.
Employees can support NNC and receive the tax benefit immediately. There’s no need to go through the process of submitting tax deductible donations with their tax return – the benefit is immediate. They don’t have to remember to make each month’s payment, and can opt out at any time.
