Participation in Australian workplace giving programs has improved over the last 5 years, particularly since new tax legislation came into effect. However, a review of international benchmarks suggests this could still be increased from $20 million a year to approximately $200 million a year.

Australian Workplace Giving Survey
Thursday, 9th October 2008 at 3:35 pm

Participation in Australian workplace giving programs has improved over the last 5 years, particularly since new tax legislation came into effect. However, a review of international benchmarks suggests this could still be increased from $20 million a year to approximately $200 million a year.

In order to stimulate debate about current levels of workplace giving and drive further growth, a research study is now underway to explore the current state of play of workplace giving programs in the corporate sector, including key success factors and reasons for non-participation.

This research is a joint collaboration between PricewaterhouseCoopers, the three key workplace giving providers – The Australian Charities Fund, United Way, and Charities Aid Foundation, and the Centre for Social Impact.

This will be a quantitative study targeted at community program managers from organisations both with, and without, workplace giving programs.

This research study is particularly interested in including companies who have workplace giving programs but run these directly (ie – not through any of the workplace giving providers).

If your company runs a workplace giving program directly and you are happy to be included in this research, please contact Danielle Begg at the Centre for Social Impact- danielle.begg@unsw.edu.au and you will be invited to complete the confidential online questionnaire in early November 2008.

Senior Researcher Mark Lyons says the feedback will help to ensure this research is successful in generating actionable insights and business intelligence to drive the growth of this channel.

Results of the study will be launched and made publicly available early next year to help facilitate the growth of existing workplace giving programs, and to encourage companies who do not currently have programs to get involved.
