What is workplace giving?
Workplace giving (WPG also known as Payroll giving), enables employees to make a pre-tax donation to a registered charity of their choice direct from their salary. Employees make small, regular donations through their pay and receive an immediate tax refund.
It’s simple, low cost and extremely effective when a workforce gives together. Companies can even amplify their work place giving program by matching employees’ donations – meaning charities have the opportunity to receive more!
How do I start workplace giving?
The easiest way to start work place giving is to ask your company if they have a workplace giving programme already set up. If so, they can set you up with the correct process and you can choose your charity of choice to start donating to every month – it’s as simple as that!
If they don’t have a workplace giving programme in place then tell your payroll department that you would like to start workplace giving and ask them to arrange it. All modern payroll systems can facilitate a workplace giving program.
The easiest way for the company is to register with Good2Give.
