Workplace giving is a simple, effective and secure way for employees to make a regular pre-tax donation directly from their pay.
A workplace giving program is an excellent way to boost employee morale, while achieving your corporate social responsibility goals. There’s also the opportunity to maximise your company’s impact by pledging to match staff donations. Not only will you improve staff participation and engagement, but you’ll demonstrate your company’s commitment to an ethical, inclusive workplace that is driving social change.
