Workplace giving for employers

What is workplace giving?

Workplace giving allows employees to make donations to WWF-Australia direct from their pre-tax pay. Their income tax is immediately adjusted based on their donation, eliminating the need to keep receipts for their annual tax return. Employers often boost the impact of their giving program through donation matching, fundraising, volunteering, skill sharing and in-kind support.

Workplace giving is a proven tool for building a more engaged, inclusive and motivated workforce, contributing to overall business performance. By enabling staff to donate direct from their pay, you help their hard-earned money get to WWF-Australia in the most efficient way. Workplace giving delivers sustained, cost-effective funding to WWF-Australia, allowing us to focus on achieving our vital conservation goals.

We work collaboratively with our workplace giving partners to ensure their programs are meaningful and engaging. As a partner, we will support you and your staff through regular impact communication, a range of engaging activities and activations.
