Workplace giving

Use payroll giving to protect Australia’s natural heritage

Workplace giving programs make an incredible contribution to Bush Heritage. Regular donations via your payroll system mean that every dollar goes even further toward achieving conservation results – that's because your regular gifts keep administration costs low and allow us to plan more effectively.

For employees

Workplace giving donations are deducted from your salary before tax, potentially reducing your taxable income. That means you receive the tax benefit immediately, rather than having to wait until the end of the financial year. In some cases, your employer may match your donation dollar-for-dollar – be sure to ask them!

How to donate through an existing Workplace Giving Program

To donate regularly to Bush Heritage Australia, simply ask your payroll department to deduct your nominated donation from your gross (pre-tax) salary each pay period.

How to start a Workplace Giving Program

If your workplace does not have a Workplace Giving Program, let us help you! It’s very easy to set up and won’t create extra work for your payroll department. Simply contact our Community Engagement team today or phone us on 1300 628 873.

How to donate if your company doesn't offer a Workplace Giving Program

If your workplace doesn't offer a Workplace Giving Program, why not become a special supporter of Bush Heritage by giving regular donations using your credit card?

For employers

Workplace Giving Programs are simple to establish and manage through the regular payroll system. There are no additional tax forms to fill in and all employees on the Pay As You Go (PAYG) system are eligible to join.

If you'd like to match your employees’ donations dollar-for-dollar, you’ll see what a great boost Workplace Giving can be to company goodwill and loyalty.

For more information on starting or administering a Workplace Giving Program simply contact our Community Engagement team or phone us on 1300 628 873.

David Cook-Doulton's workplace, JB Hi-Fi, matches employees' donations to Bush Heritage dollar-for-dollar. 

'Workplace giving has given me the ability to make a weekly contribution to a passionate organisation that I trust will put every dollar to good use.'

'Recently, I got the chance to visit Yourka Reserve, which was wonderful. You can see all the hard work Bush Heritage is doing. It's amazing to see just how resilient wildlife can be.'
