Workplace Giving is a simple and convenient way to make regular donations towards helping stop the suffering of animals around the world.
It allows employees to make direct, pre-tax donations from their gross salary. Depending on the amount donated, an immediate tax benefit is received every time employees donate. There is no need for receipts or waiting to claim donations with annual tax returns.
The process is simple. Just enter a Workplace Giving arrangement and nominate WSPA as the charity or recipient. The donation amount will be a set amount deducted from each employee’s pay period, i.e. fortnightly or monthly. The amount deducted can be changed at any time by making a request to the employer. The total donation amount for all employees involved for a specific pay period is then paid directly by the employers to WSPA.
Helping you, your company and animals
Workplace Giving benefits your business
When employers participate in Workplace Giving, they show their interest in wider social issues to investors, shareholders, customers and employees. Value is added to the company’s corporate profile, resulting in increased community approval and acceptance. It is an easy and low-cost way to improve staff morale and loyalty, making their business more attractive to new and existing employees. In addition, they have the opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to staff interests by matching their donations.
Workplace Giving benefits you
Most people find that giving through the payroll system is one of the most convenient ways to donate to their charity of choice. When an individual makes a donation, it usually comes from their ‘taxed‘ income. With Workplace Giving, employees get the benefit of giving ‘pre-tax‘, making the value of each dollar go even further. Employer-matched giving is also a great way to encourage your staff to become involved in Workplace Giving. When an employer matches employee donations dollar for dollar, the benefit for the animals also doubles.
Most importantly, Workplace Giving benefits animals in need
Workplace Giving is a great way of providing the time and the financial resources needed to find permanent solutions for many of the world’s animal welfare problems. WSPA benefits by receiving regular, stable funding without needing to issue individual receipts, saving time and money. This means more of your money goes directly to the animals in need. By taking part, you and your company can help create real and lasting change for animals worldwide.
“My contribution is taken out of my pre-tax pay and my firm matches my contribution dollar for dollar. I don’t even notice the contribution being taken out of my pay and WSPA benefits from getting twice as much as what I am able to give” – Edyta Torpy, Supporter of WSPA through Workplace Giving for 10 years
