What is Workplace Giving?
Workplace Giving is a small regular donation from your pay (its generally taken out pre-tax). It’s coordinated by your employer’s payroll and is a simple and really effective way to make a real difference to the lives of people living with the effects of disadvantage in your community.
Watch the video below for an introduction into Workplace Giving from Give Where You Live Foundation CEO, Bill Mithen!
Give Where You Live Foundation Workplace Giving Program
By signing up to the Give Where You Live Foundation Workplace Giving Program you’ll be making a real difference to your community.
For over 60 years, thousands of Geelong workers have been donating to the Foundation’s Workplace Giving Program. It’s the backbone of the Give Where You Live Foundation’s fundraising.
Your contributions this year will ensure the Foundation can continue running its programs such as GROW (G21 Opportunities for Work), Feed Geelong and a major Direct Assistance Voucher Program as well as ensuring grants of over $1.15 million (during 2020) are allocated to assist organisations to deliver programs and services across your region assisting those living with the effects of disadvantage.
