Payroll and matched giving
If just 10% of the Australian workforce donated $5 a week from their pay, an extra $250 million per year would be raised for our communities.1
Barnardos works directly with over 6000 Australian children and young people each year. We believe in children, their right to a caring family environment and their right to have the opportunity to reach their full potential. To read more about Barnardos and our work click here.
What is Payroll Giving?
Payroll Giving is a simple and tax effective way to make regular donations to Barnardos. Donations are automatically deducted from your pay. Your employer deducts your donation amount from your salary before deducting your tax. This means you will receive a tax benefit every time, without the need for receipts or to wait until the end of the financial year to claim.
Benefits to you
A lot of people find that Payroll Giving is the most convenient way to assist their chosen charity. Payroll Giving donations are tax effective, employees donate with pre-tax dollars and enjoy immediate tax benefits. You do not need to request receipts for your contributions as your total donation amount is included in your payment summary. You no longer have to worry about direct debits or sending cheques for your donations – it is done automatically each pay cycle by your employer.
Benefits to your employer
Payroll Giving offers employers a vehicle to build positive non-profit community partnerships. Payroll Giving is easy to set up and low on costs and administration resources. The program helps to strengthen employee recruitment, loyalty and retention by boosting staff morale.
