Workplace Giving

Make a difference for refugees by donating a portion of your salary each pay day.

Each pay day, you can provide refugees and displaced people with life-saving aid, from safe shelter to education. 

What is workplace giving?

Workplace giving is a simple, easy and tax-effective way to support refugees. By donating a portion of your paycheck to Australia for UNHCR, you can support refugees on their journey to safety while also reducing your taxable income. 

What's in it for employers? 

Did you know that 8 out of 10 employees feel that their company's workplace giving programs shows genuine commitment to the community? Workplace giving can:

  • Boost employee engagement and morale
  • Improve employee retention
  • Attract skilled employees
  • Increase your company's social impact

Small actions can add up to something big.

Workplace giving enables you to provide regular support for refugees and displaced people. Each pay day, you'll be helping UNHCR deliver life-saving aid to people fleeing their homes.

Your gifts can provide shelter, emergency supplies such as blankets and hygiene kits, and protection services for people escaping conflict, disaster and persecution. 

Setting up workplace giving is quick and easy. Contact me to find out more or get started today.
