“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 charitable donations by 30% without any additional cost to you? Workplace giving provides you with a simple and effective way to donate to charity through automated payroll deductions. 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 charity’s administrative costs through processing fewer donations. In many cases, your employer will also choose to match your charitable donation, effectively increasing your donation by 65%.

How It Works

Employee Donation
When you give $5
It only costs you $3.50*
But your charity receives $5

Employer Matched Giving
When you give $5
It only costs you $3.50*
Your company matches your $5
Your charity receives $10

* Exact figures are dependent on the your ATO personal tax bracket

What Can Be Achieved

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. 100% of the donations we receive go directly to our four Community Partners (SecondBite, Red Dust, Beacon Foundation and Reach Out).

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