Workplace Giving Month 2024

Top Five Tips For Businesses

You and your organisation have the incredible opportunity to empower meaningful impact by offering employees the option to donate from their pay. Let’s join forces and make the most of June Workplace Giving Month! It’s a fantastic occasion to:

  • Raise awareness about your program, ensuring that everyone has the chance to be part of something extraordinary

  • Ignite staff engagement and cultivate active participation fostering a sense of unity and shared purpose among all team members

  • Take a moment to celebrate the incredible difference your donations are making in our community. It’s a chance to appreciate the collective impact we are achieving and to inspire others to embrace the spirit of giving.

Together, we can create a ripple effect of positive change that will leave a lasting impact on those in need.

1. It’s all about the program 

If you don’t have a workplace giving program, Workplace Giving Month is the best time to take action! Talk to your peer network, research workplace giving, and speak to an expert who can help you commence your journey.
Do you already have a program? Great! Level up by taking action to review and improve it. Aim for a program with a ‘Point of Choice’ where every new employee is asked to join during onboarding.   

2. Now is the time to promote! 

June is Workplace Giving Month, a great opportunity to promote and advocate for your program. Make a point of showcasing your commitment to giving and telling your people about it. Although 60% of Australian businesses offer workplace giving, their people just don’t know about it.  

Not only that, it’s also the end of the financial year, which means this is the best time to leverage end-of-year donations, matching budgets, and bonuses. You can use an appeal with double or triple matching to boost take-up.  

3. Leverage the research 

Workplace Giving Australia releases regular research, meaning you can back up your business case with hard facts. Discover further information here that you can use to assist with your program. Further, our team of experts can help you anytime to talk through your program and point you in the right direction through our advisory services. 

4. Grow your Network
