Support transformative conservation approaches that restore and protect Australia’s unique biodiversity whilst you work

Workplace giving provides a simple yet impactful way for your organisation and employees to support some of Australia’s most ambitious and important conservation projects. Supporting AWC enables our science-informed approach to conservation, which is vital to protecting Australia’s native animals and the habitats in which they live.

Workplace giving benefits all involved. Employees’ small pre-tax gifts, given as a team, bring great satisfaction knowing that you are making a big difference for conservation. For employers, workplace giving programs bring staff together, boost morale and reflect the values and beliefs of an organisation. AWC gains stable funding for vital and effective conservation projects and extends our passionate community of engaged supporters.

Workplace Giving for Employees

Workplace giving is a simple and effective way for employees to donate to AWC on a regular basis. If you choose to support AWC through a workplace giving program, your employer will deduct your specified donation from each pay and then forward your donation directly to AWC, along with any donations made by other staff at your workplace.

What are the benefits of workplace giving programs?

  • All donations to AWC through workplace giving are tax deductible,
  • Your employer may reduce the amount of tax that is taken out of your pay in recognition of your donation,
  • Sustainably and strategically support collaborative programs with Indigenous Australians,
  • AWC receives regular income but does not have to issue individual receipts for each donation. This saves time and money on administration so that 100 per cent of your donation goes directly to conservation.

If your employer does not have a workplace giving program, contact us today and we can advise you on alternative options to support AWC though other platforms.

To set up a formal workplace giving program in your organisation to support AWC, please follow the steps below:

  • Identify a group of staff members who are interested in conservation and who may wish to support AWC. We can assist by providing promotional literature on AWC and visiting your workplace to give a presentation on our work,
  • Each staff member who wishes to make a regular donation to AWC signs a letter authorising the payroll office to deduct a specified amount from each pay. AWC can provide a pro forma letter. The amount deducted will be sent by the payroll office directly to AWC,
  • AWC will liaise closely with your payroll office to assist in the establishment of the giving program,
  • AWC will provide regular updates on the impact your contributions have made on securing the future of Australia’s native animals.
