June is Workplace Giving Month!
We’d like to say a big THANK YOU to thousands of people who support Berry Street by making regular contributions directly from their pay.
We'd also like to thank the businesses and organisations that help make this happen - many of which make separate donations as well or match their employees' contributions.
Workplace giving is important to Berry Street. It helps us continue to care for the vulnerable children, young people and families that we work to support.
For the cost of a cup of coffee a week, Berry Street’s Workplace Giving is an easy way to make regular pre-tax donations from your pay.
Through your payroll giving you can:
- Help provide safe homes for children who cannot live safely at home
- Educate a child and change their life trajectory
- Help keep women and children safe
- Alleviate the trauma of the past to create a hopeful future
The Benefits of Workplace Giving
- Enjoy more engaged, strong, motivated teams
- Become an employer of choice
- Be part of changing lives forever
It’s simple, easy and effective.
Reduce your taxable income
No fuss accounting for end-of-year tax statements
The workplace giving magic
Donate $5 per pay and it costs you only $3.50* per pay because you are paying before tax is taken.
When your company matches at a ratio of 1:1, you still only pay $3.50 but Berry Street can receive $10.
*Tax rate dependent
