Workplace Giving Month offers a chance for Aussie workers to give back

Advocates say workplace giving is a stable and recurring form of fundraising for crisis-hit NFPs  

Australians are being urged to give generously during Workplace Giving Month in June to help the nation’s struggling charities.

With traditional charity fundraising methods ceased for the time being, advocates say workplace donations have become even more critical. 

Workplace Giving Australia (WGA) is calling on employers to implement a campaign for their staff members.

To help out, WGA has prepared a free kit of materials for employers and charities to use – which has been adapted to accommodate employees working remotely due to COVID-19.

WGA CEO Jenny Geddes said charities needed the support of Australian workers.

“Charities across our country are experiencing unprecedented demand for their services, yet due to the COVID-19 crisis, many have not been in a position to implement traditional fundraising campaigns,” Geddes said.

“Yet again, workplace giving is proving to be a stable and recurring form of fundraising. 

“On behalf of those in our community in need, we encourage employers to implement a campaign for their team to get behind… all the 50 cents and $1 dollar donations from working Australians add up to millions when combined with other working Australians.”

The full suite of resources can be accessed here.
