The Power Of Workplace Giving
Pre-tax giving means...
*Amount varies dependent on personal ATO tax bracket.
$5000 allows us to deliver:
- a piece of sports equipment
- a fitness session
- a health session and
- a healthy bodies back pack
Donations are recorded on your payslips and tax deductions are automatic. Workplace giving does not affect your superannuation and payroll tax calculations. It reduces your PAYG liability but doesn’t decrease your gross income and there is no need to scrabble round for donation receipts come tax time.
Work place giving is tax effective for you as you receive an immediate tax benefit instead of having to wait until the end of financial year.
It’s effective for Fair Game as it provides a stable, low cost form of funding allowing us to commit to long term programs and increasing our impact.

Workplace giving is the most cost effective, efficient and ethical way for working Australians to support charities.
When employees were given a social incentive such as having a charitable donation linked to their job, performance increased by an average of 13 per cent, rising to 30 per cent among those who were initially the least productive.* Payroll giving initiatives also improve public perception of an organisation, attracting publicity and positive media attention, and creating trust and goodwill for the brand.
