Workplace giving is a simple and effective method for employees to support a charity.
It is voluntary and simply involves employees nominating a charity and the amount per month they’d like to donate. The deduction is then made through the company’s payroll system. The pledge can be anything from a couple of dollars to several hundred per month.

Some companies also choose to match employee contributions. Matching can be all or a percentage of the donations raised by their employees. When an organisation matches its employees’ contributions, employees know their charitable donations go further and that their commitment to community development is a value shared by their employer. The simplicity and effectiveness of this type of program is reflected in the growing popularity in Australia.
