What is Workplace Giving?
Workplace giving is an easy way for you to make regular donations from your pre-tax salary.
By making donations from your salary before tax is calculated, you not only reduce your taxable income, you also no longer have to worry about searching for receipts at tax time. Because your donations come from your pre-tax income, you receive your tax benefit as you go.
Workplace Giving is a great way to make simple, hassle-free donations. Once you’ve set up Workplace Giving with your employer, there’s nothing more for you to do except enjoy the feeling of being part of saving lives and building great communities.
What impact will my Workplace Giving make?
By supporting Surf Life Saving WA, you will be helping to fund rescue equipment, medical supplies, and training for our volunteer surf lifesavers. All donations of every size will help our surf lifesavers save lives and keep Western Australia’s beaches safe.
- $3 a fortnight will provide beach safety signs that alert beachgoers to dangers in the surf
- $5 a fortnight will provide a rescue tube to help lifesavers keep a struggling swimmer afloat until further help arrives
- $15 a fortnight will provide a set of binoculars to help volunteer lifesavers spot more people on our beaches who might be in danger
- By combining your donation with your colleagues through Workplace Giving, the power of your support can be even greater. Combined, your support could provide a surf rescue board to help our volunteer lifesavers bring struggling swimmers safely back to shore.
Workplace Giving provides a regular income stream for Surf Life Saving WA, allowing us to plan for the future. It’s also a cost-effective program to administer which keeps our costs down, ensuring more of your donations go where they’re needed most.
