“If just 10% of working Australians made a payroll charity donation of $5 a week, the Australian community would benefit by over $260 million annually.”

How would you like to boost the value of your existing charitable donations by 30% without any additional cost to you?

Workplace giving provides you with a simple and effective way to donate through automated payroll deductions to selected charities. Donations are taken pre-tax from your salary, so your dollar goes further – not only do you receive the direct tax benefit immediately, it also reduces the charities administrative costs through processing fewer donations. In some cases, companies will also choose to match your charitable donation, effectively increasing your donation by 65%.

How it Works

It only costs you $3.50*

Employer Matched Giving

When you give $5

It only costs you $3.50*

Your company matches your $5

What Can Be Achieved

Through A Workplace Giving Program

For as little as a $5 donation per fortnight to Telco Together, your support will empower our community partners to bring about positive change in the areas of mental health, homelessness, social inclusion and indigenous health and wellbeing.

Next Steps

1.    Ask your employer if they offer a Workplace Giving Program. If so, perhaps they provide match funding.

2.    If they don’t, request they contact Telco Together to talk through the simple steps of setting up the program

3.    Decide on the donation amount  (deducted from your pre-tax salary) and which charity / cause you want to support.

4.    Complete your employer’s salary sacrifice form to complete the process

You will learn how your donation is making a difference to your chosen charity via community updates.
