Donations have the power to make a difference
What is Workplace Giving?
Giving through your pay is one of the most cost effective and simple ways of making a donation to Salesian Missions Australia. Your donation is deducted automatically from your pre-tax salary. This reduces your salary for taxation purposes but doesn’t affect the amount you are giving. As the donation is pre-tax, there is no need to keep or present receipts at tax time.
You can choose how much and how often you would like to donate and in some cases your donation is gift matched by your employer.
Salesian Missions use the Good2Give organisation to facilitate workplace giving/company matching donations. To know whether your organisation participates, please contact your employer.Workplace giving - Good2Give
