Workplace giving programs make it simple and easy for employees to be involved and contribute to charities of their choice.
Workplace giving enable staff, customers and shareholders to make regular and once-off donations to community organisations. Some organisations have matched giving where staff donations are matched dollar for dollar by the employer.
Lort Smith has been fortunate to be chosen as a workplace giving partner by many organisations including:
- JB HiFi
- Ernst & young
- BHP Billiton
- Department of Primary Industries - Victoria.
Our relationship with these organisations also provides opportunities for us to work together on community fundraising and employee volunteering projects.
A major benefit of work place giving for employees is that donations are deducted from your pre-tax salary. When you make a general donation to a charity you would normally claim it as a tax deduction in your annual tax return. Through pre-tax payroll giving the Australian Tax Office allows you to claim the benefit up front each pay.
Our current workplace giving program is administered by CAF. If your employer is not currently set up with CAF, then please visit the Good2Give website for more information.
If you are interested in donating via work place giving please contact our Fundraising Team on 03 9321 7207 and we will be happy to run through this with you.
