What is Workplace Giving?

Workplace giving is an easy and effective way for employees to make a difference by giving a regular donation through their pre-tax pay. For companies, a Workplace Giving Program demonstrates strong corporate social responsibility and commitment to supporting their employee’s charitable interests.

Workplace Giving is simple, low cost and easy to set up. It also means that employees who participate receive an immediate tax benefit.

Why choose to support Women and Girls?

Women and Girls make up over 60% of the world’s most vulnerable and excluded people. By making a regular donation through your pre-tax pay, your ongoing support ensures long-term sustainable programs that will empower women leaders and young girls to take charge and create change.

By empowering women and girls to stand up for their rights, through education, training, resources, and bringing them together, they can create the sustainable future they deserve.
