Workplace giving for employees

The Heart Foundation’s workplace giving program makes it easy to setup regular, tax-deductible donations from your pre-tax income.

Donate the easy way – direct from your pay 

The Heart Foundation’s workplace giving program empowers you to fund life-saving research into heart disease. You become a vital part of our work to reduce the impact of heart disease in Australia. 
 
You can do this by making a regular tax-deductible donation to the Heart Foundation through your employer’s payroll system – give as much or as little as you like. 

What are the benefits of workplace giving? 

  • It’s all automated. Once you’ve signed up, you don’t need to do anything. Even the recordkeeping is taken care of – it’s recorded on your payslip and you receive a tax receipt at the end of the financial year. 
  • Your donations are pre-tax, so your taxable income is reduced. 
  • If your employer has a matched giving program, your donation might be doubled, or even tripled! 
  • Our administration costs are kept low, so you can be assured more of your donation is going where it’s needed most. 

Why workplace giving? 

Regular donations through your workplace are vital to funding our life-saving research and work to improve heart disease prevention and care for all Australians. By donating through workplace giving, you can make your money go even further.  

What happens if you change jobs? 

If you change job, you’ll need to setup your donation again with your new employer. The registration won’t follow you to your new job, but it’s easy setup again and we hope that you’ll continue to support Australian lives. 

How to join a workplace giving program 

  1. Find out if your organisation has a workplace giving program.  
  2. If they do, nominate the Heart Foundation as your charity of choice and select your donation amount.  
  3. Your employer will then make these donations to the Heart Foundation on your behalf. 
  4. If they don’t, contact the Heart Foundation’s Workplace Giving team and we will help to set one up.
