GIVE THROUGH YOUR PAY
Giving through your pay, or Workplace Giving, is a simple way to make a regular pre-tax donation to Garvan. Donations are processed automatically through your employer’s payroll department, so there’s no need to fuss around with receipts at tax-time. That’s great news for you, and great news for medical research.
How it works
The best part of Workplace Giving is that the donation is made from your pre-tax income, so the tax deduction is immediate. For example, if you nominated a donation of, say, $5 each pay cycle it would actually cost you less than that (depending on your level of taxation), because of the automatic tax deduction. Your chosen charity however receives the full $5.
If your employer chooses to dollar-match employee donations then your generosity goes even further.
