Workplace Giving / Regular Giving
Workplace Giving provides a simple and tax effective way for employees to participate in charitable giving. Through Workplace Giving employees donate money on a regular basis to one or more deductible gift recipients (DGR’s) directly through their pay. The HIA Charitable Foundation is a registered DGR that is entitled to receive tax deductible donations.
Employees nominate their preferred DGR from the selection of DGRs provided by their employers, the frequency of their donations (for example fortnightly, monthly, etc) and the donation amount.
When employers calculate the amount to be withheld from the employee's salary for a pay period, they should deduct the employee's donation amount from the gross salary before referring to the appropriate tax table.
At the end of the financial year employers provide each employee with confirmation of the employee’s
donation(s). This confirmation is needed to claim a tax deduction.
Workplace Giving is a three way partnership between employees, employers and charities. Every program brings compelling benefits to each participant. From supporting charities to meeting corporate social responsibility objectives, Workplace Giving joins communities in firm, positive and lasting relationships and offers employers a vehicle to build community partnerships and boost employee morale.
