During June, Australia’s peak body for workplace giving – Workplace Giving Australia (WGA) – is highlighting the importance of funds that working Australians are donating from their pay to charities.
June is Workplace Giving Month and WGA is calling on employers across the country to implement an innovative campaign for their team members. To assist, WGA has prepared a free kit of materials for employers and charities to use. The 2021 kit has a hybrid of ideas tailored to involve employees working remotely and for those working back in their offices.
“Charities across Australia are experiencing unprecedented demand for their services, yet due to the COVID-19 crisis, many have not been in a position to implement traditional fundraising campaigns. Yet again, workplace giving is proving to be a stable and recurring form of fundraising” said Jenny Geddes, CEO, Workplace Giving Australia.
“On behalf of those in our community in need, we encourage employers to implement a campaign for their team to get behind…all the 50 cents and $1 dollar donations from working Australians add up to millions when combined with other working Australians.”
