Workplace Giving

A little contribution each pay makes a world of difference to cancer patients and carers.

WHAT IS WORKPLACE GIVING?

Workplace Giving is a simple yet powerful way for employees to assist SolarisCare in delivering integrated care to cancer patients in Western Australia. More and more businesses are offering workplace giving to their employees to demonstrate community mindedness and committment to supporting initiatives that benefit those in need.

Workplace Giving donations are deducted from your employees' salary before tax is applied, thus reducing taxable income. Furthermore, because donations are made pre-tax, it only costs each employee 52 cents for every dollar they pledge*, The Australian Taxation Office pays the balance.
* based on a marginal tax rate of 48.5%

Once established, Workplace Giving can provide SolarisCare and your organisation with an effective low cost and low maintenance way to support the community.

IS IT DIFFICULT TO SET UP?

Most of the administration is handled as per your normal payroll procedures. All modern payroll systems can handle Workplace Giving. Each pay cycle your payroll electronically transfers the donations from any employee directly to SolarisCare in a single transaction.

Check with your employer to see if they already have a Workplace Giving arrangement or contact us to discuss how we can assist in getting this set up.
