Workplace Giving

What is workplace giving?

Workplace giving is a simple and effective way for you to regularly donate to ocean conservation – supporting the Australian Marine Conservation Society (AMCS) through your employer’s payroll system.

Under a workplace giving or payroll deduction program all donations are made from your pre-taxable income and result in an automatic tax deduction. This is the easiest way to give as you don’t need to worry about collecting receipts throughout the year.

 

How does it work?

Workplace Giving is a powerful way to donate to ocean conservation. Donations are made from pre-taxed income, which is reduced by the amount of the donation. In other words, the tax benefit is immediate, without even putting in your tax return!

For example, a $20 pre-tax donation only costs you $13.60 – but the Australian Marine Conservation Society receives the full $20 (assuming a marginal tax rate of 32%). The Workplace Giving arrangement does not affect your gross income or other calculations, such as superannuation guarantee payments or fringe benefits (FBT).

 

How does my donation help?

Your regular contribution gives a charity the stability to employ critical staff – directly funding our work protecting our ocean wildlife, making our fisheries sustainable and creating places in the sea where our precious ocean animals are safe from harm.

So if you’re at work and dreaming of being at the beach, you’ll know that you are helping preserve oceans and marine life for future generations.

Many employers already have a workplace giving program in place. If not, encourage your employer to set up one in-house. Alternatively, AMCS is registered with Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) who administer contributions for over 500 Australian charities.

If you require any assistance please contact us at amcs@amcs.org.au or phone (07) 3846 6777.
