Workplace giving

Workplace Giving – also know as payroll giving – is an easy and effective way for you to donate to Ambulance Wish Western Australia through automated payroll deductions and reduce your taxable income. Employees can contribute a small amount of their pre-tax salary to Ambulance Wish Western Australia via their payroll department and immediately receive the tax benefit. In simple terms, if you donate $20, it will (depending on your tax bracket) only cost you $12.60 but Ambulance Wish Western Australia will receive the full $20. 

If your employer chooses to match staff donations, the value of the donation will double, with the charity receiving $40.  The most successful way to increase donations is for workplaces to match donations. Businesses can enhance the impact of their workplace giving program by incorporating volunteering, skill-sharing and in-kind support.

By joining a Workplace Giving program and pledging to make a regular pretax donation from your pay, you are helping fulfil final wishes for terminally ill patients. Ambulance Wish Western Australia is run entirely on charitable donations and are managed by volunteers. All donations go to running Ambulance Wish Western Australia and fulfilling last wishes.
