Give to Others
WHAT IS WORKPLACE GIVING?
Workplace Giving is an automatic, paper-less process that allows you to make regular donations to the charity of your choice. Simply inform your employer that you’d like to donate a set amount to BCEF each month and they will forward your donation directly each payday. You can also invite your employer to match your donation so that your gift to BCEF can go even further!
WHY CHOOSE WORKPLACE GIVING?
Workplace Giving is easy to set up, without the need to remember bank or credit card details. Upon instruction, your employer will deduct the donation from your pay forward to BCEF on your behalf.
Regular donations are one of the best ways you can help the work of BCEF so we can support young people out in Rural NSW get the education they need and support communities in regional NSW. They have the dignity of knowing they can rely on funds to help them, without constantly asking for more support.
WILL MY EMPLOYER MATCH MY DONATION?
Many employers will match workplace giving donations. Contact your employer’s workplace giving officer or HR department to find out specifics. It’s really easy.
WHAT HAPPENS AT TAX-TIME? ARE MY WORKPLACE GIVING DONATIONS TAX-DEDUCTIBLE?
Yes, Workplace Giving donations are tax-deductible. In fact, Workplace Giving lets employees donate to charities from their pre-tax pay, meaning you receive an immediate tax refund. For example, if you donate $20, it will only cost you $12.60, but BCEF will receive the full $20.
Donations made under a Workplace Giving arrangement and donations made direct to charities are reported in the same way on your tax return. Deductions will automatically appear on an employee’s group certificate.
It’s a win-win-win for business, employees and charities.
Employers enjoy greater staff engagement, retention, productivity, reputation and social impact.
Employees give in a smarter, tax-effective way and build a sense of pride in their employer
Charities get low-cost, regular funds, access to valuable skills and strong partnerships.

June is Workplace Giving Month
The end of the financial year – is an ideal time to promote WPG as many of us make donations at this time. Providing the opportunity to do this directly from their pay allows employees to make their donation in the most tax effective and efficient way possible. If this timing doesn’t work for your organisations ensure you strategically plan another time during the year where you can promote and celebrate your program.
We encourage you to use June Workplace Giving Month to:
Build awareness of your program
Drive staff engagement and participation
Celebrate the impact your donations are making in the community
