For employees
  • It gives employees with an opportunity to make regular donations directly to charities like DVConnect from their pre-taxed income.
  • Employees nominate a charity and donation amount and these details are forwarded onto their employers payroll department who will process the donation to DVConnect on the employees behalf.
  • Once you’ve set up Workplace Giving through your payroll, you’ll hardly notice the deductions, but they will mean the world to those you directly support.


For employers

Workplace giving delivers a positive financial impact for charities like us.  Workplace giving streamlines the financial management process of corporate donations to charities and reduces administration so more money goes directly to those who need it most. Workplace giving is a simple way for employees to regularly donate to a designated charity, like DVConnect. Employees technically receive the same salary from their employer, but donate a portion of it every pay to their nominated charity (that has Deductable Gift Recipient status). 

  • The employer forwards the employee’s donations to the charity. The employee is still making the donation to the charity.
  • The employee claims a deduction for their donation to the charity in their own tax return.
  • The amount of the employee’s gross salary remains the same.
  • In most cases, the donation amount is a fixed amount that the employer deducts from the employee’s pay each pay day.

The employer chooses to either:

  • reduce the amount of tax deducted from the employee’s pay each pay period to account for the donation. (The employee still claims a tax deduction in their tax return.)
  • not to reduce the amount of tax withheld from the employee each pay period. (The employee claims a tax deduction for the amount donated at the end of the financial year.)

      Thank you for your help, for everything you have done for me over the last few days. Your services are more than impressive and impeccable for anyone who may be in danger or in need of help of any kind. I may not be here today without your protection and the services you provided me. It is amazing to know there are people out there that give their absolute best to keep others safe, because they can and they care. Before making the call to you I felt too ashamed and far too proud to ask anyone for help. But now I feel strong knowing that I had the courage to put my hand up and ask for help. It saved my life!
