Do you have a Workplace Giving program at your office? We would really appreciate you donating to Deaf Children Australia through Workplace Giving. This is such an easy way to contribute to DCA, setting up donations from your pre-tax salary through your payroll.
Workplace Giving is also a great way for employers to engage with their staff and for employees to easily donate to their charity of choice like DCA.
For not for profits like DCA, Workplace Giving provides long term, stable funding for core programs. You can make regular donations to Deaf Children Australia through your payroll system. It’s so easy to set up, and every modern payroll system can facilitate Workplace Giving.
How do Workplace Giving donations work?
Donations are deducted automatically from your pre-tax salary so the tax deduction is immediate and there is no need for you to collect receipts.
DCA has deductible gift recipient (DGR) status and is registered with Good2Give. This is an easy way to donate to DCA through Workplace Giving but your employer may use an alternative. The donation can be as small or large as you wish and you can adjust the amount you donate at any time.
As your donation is pre-tax, it will cost you less than the amount DCA receives. Go to Good2Give’s tax calculator to find out the benefits.
Some generous employers even choose to match employee donations, doubling the impact of your support.

How Workplace Giving works for Employers
For employers, workplace giving can provide a low cost, administratively simple way of creating community/business partnerships and building employee morale, by mobilising significant funding and volunteer involvement.
As an employer, if you wish to offer workplace giving, you can invite your employees to enter into a workplace giving program. Your employees will nominate their preferred charity from a selection you provide and then specify the amount they wish to donate. Generally, the donation amount is a fixed amount deducted from their salary or wages on each pay day. You then pay the donation directly to the charity.
The workplace giving program does not affect the way your employees’ gross income, super guarantee payments or fringe benefits are worked out.
Your employees’ individual tax returns are not affected by workplace giving.
Donations made under a workplace giving arrangement and donations made direct to charities are reported in the same way on the tax return.
Please, sign up for Deaf Children Australia’s Workplace Giving Program today. You will know you are helping to empower children and young people who are deaf or hard of hearing every time you get paid.
