Workplace giving is a simple and effective way for individuals to make regular donations to the McGrath Foundation through automated payroll deductions.
Donating $20 each pay period through workplace giving will cost you only $13.70 and the McGrath Foundation will receive the full $20.*
* Based on a marginal tax rate of 32.5%
Workplace giving allows you as an employee to make a regular donation off your gross pay. Your employer sends your donation to us in one lump sum along with other employees' donations. You can easily claim a deduction for donations in your annual tax return off the information provided by your employer on your employee payment summary. It's a quick and easy way for you to support the McGrath Foundation, and because we receive your donation in a lump sum and don't need to send you an individual tax receipt, it's also quick and easy for us to process.
To enrol in workplace giving contact your payroll or human resources manager to find out about your company's program or for more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The McGrath Foundation is proud to be supported through workplace giving programs at companies and organisations large and small, throughout Australia.
Establishing a workplace giving program engages your employees and demonstrates your commitment to corporate social responsibility. A program is easy to set-up and is a simple, efficient way to support your employees' desire to give back to their community. In addition, implementing a matched giving program - whereby the company matches all or a percentage of employees' contributions - is a powerful incentive, bringing employees together and boosting morale as well as substantially increasing your combined support.
To learn more about the McGrath Foundation workplace giving program, or for information on establishing your company's program, please contact the Donation team anytime on (02) 8962 6100 or email email@example.com.
Important information about workplace giving can be found on the ATO website (including their Guide to Workplace Giving).
