What is Workplace giving?
Workplace giving is a unique form of supporting your favourite cause where you receive the tax benefit at the time of the donation rather than having to wait until the end of the tax year. The mechanics are simple, you tell your payroll officer/department that you want to make a regular donation to the ACN Foundation. Because you are donating to a registered charity, the money is taken from your pre-tax salary which reduces the amount of tax that you are paying.
Why should I become a Workplace giver?
Workplace giving is an easy and convenient way we can work together to make a significant difference. Just 40 people electing to forego the equivalent of one small coffee per week will mean that a scholarship can be provided to a nurse who would not be able to advance their career because of financial constraints. A regular donation, no matter how small, will go a long way inproviding support and assistance to nurses who need it. We are incredibly grateful to all those who choose to invest in advancing the future of the nursing profession.
These figures, of course, are indicative. From the experience of the One Million Donors’ Campaign, we know that some donors will be able to afford $2.50 per week, whilst others may contribute $20 per week. Regardless of the amount that you can give, on behalf of the nurses whose lives you will affect, we say thank you.
How do I sign up?
Once you have decided to support nurse scholarships as a Workplace Giver, you will need to speak with your Payroll or HR officer so that they sign up your organization to the Workplace Giving program.
It is a very simple process. Your Payroll or HR officer will then let you know to complete the appropriate forms.
