Workplace giving is a great way for employees to make regular donations to charity from their pre-tax dollars and directs more of their valuable financial support towards our local communities.
Who benefits from Workplace Giving?
Everyone benefits from workplace giving.
Research proves that employers with a strong giving program are more likely to attract better talent, improve staff retention and produce a stronger and productive workplace culturei.
Employees are given the choice to select the causes they are most passionate about and they feel a sense of pride and impact in their communityii. There are also immediate tax benefits for employees where taxable income is reduced for each donation. When you give $5.00, it will only cost you $3.50 as the donation will come directly out of your pay.
For the Brotherhood of St. Laurence, workplace giving is a cost-effective and stable income stream that can directly support the local communities we work with.
Sign up to donate for a minimum of $5.00/week (pre-tax this will only cost you $3.50) for 12 months with us and we will send you our limited edition Keep Cup!
