Workplace giving

Workplace giving enables employees to give directly to Cancer Council from their pre-tax pay. It's one of the simplest, most tax efficient and cost-effective ways to donate. Corporate organisations can engage and motivate staff by providing an integrated staff engagement program, including matching workplace giving funds donated by employees.

Benefits:

  • increase staff morale
  • increase staff retention
  • promote visible interaction with the community
  • promote a positive perception of your business, and
  • support the choice of your employees.

Since donations come from pre-tax pay, the amount donated is inflated (see below):
