St John Ambulance (VIC) Workplace Giving program allows you to help us continue our free community programs and enhance the First Aid Services provided by our volunteers by making a regular, tax deductible donation through your employer’s payroll system. It’s an easy way to give regularly to St John, while ensuring you get the tax benefits you are entitled to.
Why participate in workplace giving?
- Workplace giving eliminates the need for employees to collect receipts or wait until the end of the year to claim a tax refund.
- Giving from pre-tax income means donations cost employees less, while charities like St John receive the full benefit of the donation.
- Workplace giving brings the spirit of giving to your company culture and the ‘feel good’ factor that comes from giving with it.
How to join a Workplace Giving program
Workplace giving is one of the best ways you can donate to St John. Your donation, no matter, how big or small, will make a real difference to St John.
If your workplace has a giving program in place, they may have a form for you to fill in. If they don’t, you can download our workplace giving brochure, fill in the form and give it to your payroll team. (Alternatively, if your workplace uses the Good2Give Workplace Giving platform, you can simply request your login details to set up your donations online.)
Nominate your monthly donation amount. Donating via workplace giving provides an immediate tax benefit by reducing your taxable income, and it’s all recorded on your pay slip. No receipts required.
Ask if your employer will match your contribution. Many employers choose to support their staff by by dollar matching donations, increasing your combined impact on community.
