Workplace giving is one of the easiest and most effective ways to support The Cathy Freeman Foundation by simply donating small amounts from your regular pre-tax pay.
1. CHECK TO SEE IF YOUR EMPLOYER ALREADY HAS A WORKPLACE GIVING PROGRAM IN PLACE, YOUR PAYROLL TEAM SHOULD HAVE A SIMPLE FORM FOR YOU TO COMPLETE TO SETUP YOUR REGULAR DONATIONS.
IF THEY DON'T ALREADY HAVE A WORKPLACE GIVING PROGRAM SETUP, LET US KNOW AND WE WILL GET IN TOUCH WITH YOUR PAYROLL TEAM WITH STEPS TO SETUP YOUR PROGRAM.
3. ONCE SETUP, ASK YOUR PAYROLL TEAM IF YOUR EMPLOYER OFFERS DOLLAR MATCHING FOR DONATIONS TO GREAT CAUSES. THIS IS THE BEST WAY TO MAXIMISE YOUR IMPACT!

Workplace giving is one of the easiest and most effective ways to donate to the Cathy Freeman Foundation. Once you have set up the donation with your employer, the nominated amount will come out of your pre-tax pay and save you the hassle of setting up a regular donation and having to claim back at tax time.
By making small, regular donations to the Cathy Freeman Foundation via your regular pay cycle, you are helping to change the lives of Indigenous children all throughout Australia.
