80% of employees believe that having a workplace giving program makes their company a better place to work and demonstrates a genuine commitment to the community (Good2Give, 2015).

Your employees choose the amount of their salary they wish to donate and it will be deducted directly with their pay — giving them an instant tax benefit. It’s easy to set up and easy for your employees to participate.

  • 86% of employees stated they were proud to work for their company because of their sponsored workplace giving programme (Good2Give, 2015)
  • Companies that offer donations via payroll see four times the rate of participation than programs that don’t (Benevity, 2015)
  • Organisations with high employee engagement experience 2.5 times greater revenue growth than organisations with low employee engagement and have reported profitability up to 16% higher than average (Australian Charities Fund Research, 2014).

Why Reclink Australia?

Reclink’s workplace giving program will appeal to all of your employees – with issues ranging from enabling access to local sport and community groups for homeless people or empowering Indigenous communities in Australia through sport and art programs, there is something for everyone to feel passionate about.

Our Fundraising and Corporate Partnerships Manager is available to ensure your workplace giving program runs smoothly. They can even help to organise personalised activities which also help to boost staff engagement, such as volunteering, taking part in the Choctober Campaign, and/or arranging a guest speaker to attend a staff event.

On any given night in Australia, 1 in 200 people are homeless.¹ One in five Australians aged 16-85 experience a mental illness in any year.²  Over half of adults in the lowest income households do no exercise at all and rates of obesity are higher in households with lower incomes.³  Join our movement for change and help people help themselves in the fight against social exclusion and disadvantage.
