Workplace Giving allows you to help fund crucial research into brain disease, disorders and injury by making a regular, tax-deductible donation to the Brain Foundation through your employer’s payroll system.
It is an easy way to donate – You don’t need to collect and present receipts to claim at the end of the year for a tax refund, the donation is taken from your pre-tax salary. You can choose to give as much or as little as you like.
It is cost effective – Donating from your pre-tax income means a lower upfront cost, as the tax benefit applies immediately.
Team building opportunities – Workplace giving brings staff together to support chosen charities. Many employers choose to match staff donations or donate a fixed amount, to increase the impact and boost staff morale.
Existing workplace giving programs:
If your organisation already has a workplace giving program, ask your payroll department to deduct your chosen amount from your pre-tax salary and request that it go to the Brain Foundation. If the Brain Foundation is not currently a nominated charity at your workplace, request that it be added.
Some workplaces also use third party platforms like Good2Give. Good2Give helps businesses establish a workplace giving program and makes it easy for employees to give to their preferred charity. The Brain Foundation is registered with Good2Give.
Starting a workplace giving program:
If your workplace doesn’t currently have a workplace giving program, contact your Human Resources Manager or Payroll department and ask for one to be established, and for the Brain Foundation to be nominated as a charity partner.
They can also contact Good2Give to establish a program.
