Workplace Giving

Support Australians affected by blood cancer through Workplace Giving

How does workplace giving work?

Workplace giving is an easy way for employers and their employees to help give each blood cancer patient the chance of being cured and a better quality of life. Workplace giving enables employees to make pre-tax donations to the ALLG automatically through their pay.

A workplace giving program is easy for employers to set up and provides many benefits for both companies and employees while supporting a great cause. Employers can also choose to match their employee’s contributions dollar for dollar, which magnifies some of the benefits below.

  • Improved Morale: Donating to a registered charity helps employees to feel like they are making a difference to a cause they feel passionately about. Charities receive 100 percent of all funds donated through workplace giving.
  • Effortless Donating: Since all donations are made through the payroll department, employees don’t need to do anything once they are set up.
  • Tax Savings: Donations of more than two dollars are deducted from an employee’s salary before it is taxed, resulting in an immediate tax saving.

Why make payroll donations to the ALLG?

  • Shared Goals: Every 46 minutes, someone in Australia is diagnosed with leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma or a related blood disorder and life for them and their family will change forever. Workplace Giving is therefore a simple way for working Australians to make a big difference to the search for the cancer cures.
  • Impact: If just 10% of working Australians made a regular employee donation of $5 each week, their contributions would amount to over $300 million each year. The potential for new cancer research breakthroughs, given an increase in Workplace Giving support, is incredible.
  • Receiving regular donations through workplace giving will enable us to budget and develop more clinical trials. Many people with cancer are now living longer, with a better quality of life, due to clinical trials.

Your Workplace giving donations will provide the ALLG with the long term, stable funding to conduct blood cancer clinical trials, which play a pivotal role in influencing blood cancer treatment practice worldwide. By choosing to support the ALLG through Workplace Giving, your staff can practically and effectively make a real difference to the lives of the people living with a blood cancer, and their families.
