Workplace Giving is a great way to help protect animals and conserve habitats throughout the world by providing long term, ongoing support. By taking part, you can help create real and lasting change for animals worldwide - simply by making regular donations to HSI from your pre-tax pay.
WHAT IS WORKPLACE GIVING?
A regular gift to HSI from your weekly or fortnightly pre-tax pay is an easy and tax-effective way to support HSI. Ask your employer about workplace giving. This Workplace Giving factsheet from the ATO could assist your employer in setting up a program. When your employer has a workplace giving arrangement in place nominate HSI as your chosen charity or recipient, and choose the amount you wish to donate from your pre-tax pay.
The donation amount will be a set amount deducted from each employee's pay period, i.e. fortnightly or monthly. The total donation amount for all employees involved is then paid directly by the employers to HSI. The donation amount can be changed at any time by making a request to the employer.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF WORKPLACE GIVING?
Most people find that giving through the payroll system is one of the most convenient ways to donate to their chosen charity. When an individual makes a donation through Workplace Giving, this donation is given from their ‘pre-tax' income, making the value of each dollar go even further.
It is a low cost way for companies to improve staff morale and loyalty and has the added benefit of making a business even more attractive to new employees. It is also one of the most cost-effective, ‘fuss-free' and easy ways your company can contribute to helping HSI and charities worldwide.
Employer-matched Giving is also a great way to encourage your staff to become involved in Workplace Giving. When an employer agrees to match employee donations dollar for dollar, the benefit for you chosen charity also doubles.
