Workplace/payroll Giving

What is workplace/payroll giving and why should I donate this way?

Workplace/payroll giving is a simple and easy way for you to donate to The Shepherd Centre through your employer.  It’s a secure way for employees to make regular or one-off donations via your salary.   Employees who donate in this way will instantly receive the tax benefit so will not need to submit their tax deductible donation receipts with their tax return.   

Workplace/payroll is a fantastic way for employers to demonstrate their dedication to corporate responsibility and commitment to supporting amazing causes like The Shepherd Centre.   

To incentivize and encourage workplace/payroll giving some employers also offer a donation match scheme eg: if you give $5 per month, your donation would be doubled by your workplace and The Shepherd Centre will receive $10 each month.
