With just a small pre-tax donation from your pay, you can help us continue on making a difference to the lives of those at risk of suicide.
Workplace giving is a program that lets employees donate money on a regular basis to charities that are a registered deductible gift recipient (DGR) which means that donations to the charity are deductible for taxation purposes.
Workplace Gving operates under a pre-tax system, which results in an automatic tax deduction for employees, without the need for staff to keep and claim receipts. There is no tax payable on the amount employees forego, and no liability for fringe benefits tax.
Benefits of Workplace Giving to Buisnesses
- Improved workplace culture
- Attraction and retention of quality staff
- Builds workplace morale and engagement
- Builds support from your local communities and customers
- Adds value to your company’s reputation and brand.

Workplace Giving information for employers
Once established, Workplace Giving provides your business with a rewarding, low cost and low maintenance way to support those at risk of suicide. Workplace Giving can be easily managed through your normal payroll system with no tax forms to fill out. What’s more, if your company decides to match donations made by your employees, it significantly increases the impact the Workplace Giving has for those at risk.
