Workplace Giving

image2Workplace Giving is the process wherby you as an employee make regular donations to charities through your employer’s payroll system. As an employee you can nominate an amount you wish to give from your salary each month – no matter how small. A few dollars per month is significant to a charity, especially when multiplied by a substantial number of employees. What’s more, the donations provide a steady income, allowing charities to more effectively plan for funding their long-term programs.

Menzies is a participating organisation of The Australian Charities Fund (see link below). Donations to Menzies Inc through Workplace Giving are assisted by our participation in their program.

Many organisations struggle with their fundraising efforts needed to fill the gap between government grants and actual costs to deliver their services. Menzies Inc is no exception. Workplace Giving enables employees of any workplace to make regular contributions to Menzies Inc in an administratively simple and low cost manner and with no cost to us. All donations made this way are tax deductible for you in that they are deducted automatically from your gross income prior to tax being taken out of your pay. You do not need to keep receipts or claim this on your tax return; it happens instantly, a real bonus for people who wish to give in an affordable, tax-effective manner.

Matched Giving

Employers may choose to match employee donations or donate a specified amount. The system is flexible. The Australian Charities Fund is able to tailor the program to the specific needs of the employer organsiation. Workplace Giving also encourages businesses to give pro bono and volunteer assistance to their supported charities. Productive community oriented partnerships are mutually beneficial to both business and charity, helping employers to boost morale.
If you wish to discuss any aspect of this type of giving contact Menzies Inc: (03) 9784-9700.
