Latest update on payroll giving

Since payroll giving was introduced, close to $17.7 million has been donated directly from a growing number of peoples' pay to their favourite charity or donee organisation.

In May 2014 alone 4,636 employees donated close to $772,200. Because the donations were made through payroll giving, these employees received immediate tax credits totalling just over $257,300. They did not need to wait until the end of the year to make a claim.
