Workplace giving programs – where you make regular donations via your payroll system – mean every dollar goes even further because regular gifts keep administration costs low and allow us to plan more effectively.

Workplace giving donations are deducted from your salary before tax, potentially reducing your taxable income. So you get the tax benefit immediately, instead of having to wait until the end of the financial year. In some cases, your employer may match your donations – 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 donate if your company doesn't offer a Workplace Giving Program
If your workplace doesn't offer a Workplace Giving Program, why not protect our natural wonders by giving regular donations on your credit card?
Workplace Giving Programs are simple to establish and manage through your 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 provide to company goodwill and loyalty.
