WORKPLACE GIVING

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.

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. 

HOW TO MAXIMISE YOUR IMPACT

Some organisations like to encourage their employees to participate in Workplace Giving by matching their contributions, therefore doubling the impact of your donation. Here is an example of how it works...
