Through payroll giving, you can support BirdCare Aotearoa by having your donation automatically deducted from your salary.
As with other donations, you are entitled to a tax credit of 33.33 cents for every dollar donated. But instead of having to wait until the end of the tax year to receive the credit, 33% of your donation is credited to your pay at the time of donation.
So, if you donate $20 fortnightly to BirdCare Aotearoa through payroll giving, it will only cost you $13 because you receive 33% of your donation back as a tax credit immediately in your pay!
As payroll giving is still quite new to New Zealand, not all employers offer it. Just ask your manager or payroll administrator if your workplace participates in payroll giving. If not, please consider setting up a regular donation to us instead.
Information for employers
As an employer, payroll giving is a great way to introduce corporate social responsibility to your organisation. Payroll giving can also boost staff morale and complement any existing volunteering and community engagement programmes you may offer.
