Frequently asked questions

For Employers

What is workplace giving?

Workplace giving is a joint relationship between employers, employees and not-for-profits. Individuals contribute a portion of their pre-tax salary to not-for-profits and receive the tax benefit straight away. Employers often match employee contributions to help make an even bigger impact.

What are the benefits of workplace giving?

  • Employers enjoy greater staff engagement, retention, productivity, reputation and social impact
  • Develop leadership, reputation and profile within the community
  • Be seen as an employer of choice and increase appeal to new employees
  • Not-for-profits and companies build stronger relationships

Why do companies match employee workplace giving donations?

Employees are more likely to donate if their employer matches their donations. It shows that senior management believe in the program and want to have a bigger impact on contributions. Organisations view the matching of gifts as not only an employee benefit but as a fundamental element of their overall engagement strategy.


For Employees

What are the benefits of workplace giving?

Workplace giving enables you to:

  • give in a smart, tax-effective and transparent way
  • build a sense of pride in your employer through your shared giving
  • make a difference to your community
  • give more for less – a $10 donation from your pre-tax pay equates to $6.80. Ask your employer to match your donation and you’ll be helping contribute $20. *Figures are based on a gross annual salary of $90,000, as of February 2020. Good2Give has a Workplace Giving Tax Calculator, to see how much a donation from each pay will save you in tax and actually cost.

What happens if I change jobs?

You’ll need to set up your donation again with your new employer – the registration won’t follow you to your new job. Alternatively, if your new workplace does not offer workplace giving you can sign up as a regular giver instead, however this does not come out of your pre-pay tax.
