What is Workplace Giving?

Workplace Giving is an automatic, paper-less process that allows you to make regular donations to the charity of your choice.  Simply inform your employer that you’d like to donate a set amount to UnitingWorld each month and they will forward your donation directly each payday. You can also invite your employer to match your donation so that your gift to UnitingWorld can go even further!

Why choose Workplace Giving?

Workplace Giving is easy to set up, without the need to remember bank or credit card details. Upon instruction, your employer will deduct the donation from your pay forward to UnitingWorld on your behalf.

Regular donations are one of the best ways you can help the work of UnitingWorld as it means our overseas partners can plan their projects long term with security and confidence. They have the dignity of knowing they can rely on funds for their projects without constantly asking for more support.

Will my employer match my donation?

Many employers will match workplace giving donations. Contact your employer’s workplace giving officer or HR department to find out specifics. It’s really easy.

What happens at tax-time? Are my Workplace Giving donations tax-deductible?

Yes, Workplace Giving donations are tax-deductible. In fact, Workplace Giving lets employees donate to charities from their pre-tax pay, meaning you receive an immediate tax refund. For example, if you donate $20, it will only cost you $12.60[1] but UnitingWorld will receive the full $20.

Donations made under a Workplace Giving arrangement and donations made direct to charities are reported in the same way on your tax return. Deductions will automatically appear on an employee’s group certificate.
