Workplace giving is a simple way for you to donate by a direct debit deduction from your salary. You do not have to worry about keeping receipts or waiting until the end of the financial year to obtain a tax benefit - your employer simply deducts your donation amount from your salary before deducting your tax so the benefit to you is immediate. To discuss your workplace giving options, please contact your payroll manager.
If you are an employer and thinking of setting up a workplace giving program in your organisation, we can help. Please call the Youngcare office on (07) 3041 3400 or email email@example.com
Alternatively you can contact the following agencies:

From little things, big things grow: an example of the power of workplace giving
Collins Foods Group (CFG) – the company behind Sizzler and KFC – have a simple motto for their workplace giving program: a dollar will do and 50 cents is fine.
It might not sound like much, but since the program began in December 2009, CFG and its staff have generously donated over $160,000 to Youngcare.
Youngcare is lucky to be one of five charities benefiting from the workplace giving program run by CFG, who generously match the donations of their staff. Staff participation levels are currently at 21%, and CFG have a goal to reach 30%.
Youngcare is truly grateful to be a part of the program and would like to recognise the enormous difference CFG and their staff have made in the lives of young Australians with full-time care needs.As a result of an employee survey Youngcare was selected as one of our 5 Charity Partners. As an organisation with a large percentage of young employees we felt Youngcare a perfect fit for us. The team at Youngcare have great passion and commitment to making a difference. We are proud to partner with Youngcare and look forward to continuing our work together to change people’s lives.
