Information for Employers

Why offer workplace giving?

Workplace giving benefits your organisation in many ways:

  • It’s an easy way for employers to take part in charitable giving.
  • It increases the positive perception of your organisation amongst staff, customers and suppliers.
  • It increases employee engagement.
  • You’ll be supporting the work of UnitingCare, the largest non-government provider of community services in Australia

Do you want to make a difference too?

Lots of companies choose to match their employee contributions. It’s a great way to encourage charitable giving in your workplace and for your company to have a positive impact on the lives of people who are disadvantaged or in crisis at the same time.

Choose to match employee gifts one-to-one or even two-or three-to-one. Some companies also match gifts made by retirees or spouses of eligible employees.
