Boost Employee Engagement and Empower your People!

Workplace Giving is a great way to boost employee engagement and empower people to support a worthwhile cause through easy giving and gift matching. You can help provide life changing Guide Dogs and Autism Assistance Dogs.

“KWM is proud of its long-standing commitment to the communities in which we work, live and operate. We are particularly proud of DigDeep®, our workplace giving project, which 50% of our partners & staff have passionately supported for 20 years. KWM are also proud of our partnership with Guide Dogs WA who have been part of DigDeep® since 2013. During this time we have contributed over $40,000 to support the important work of Guide Dogs WA. Together we can make a real difference.” Jane Timbs, Community Impact, National Advisor, King & Wood Mallesons.

Benefits to Employers & Employees – Everyone Wins!

Increased Engagement and Productivity

Supporting a cause makes work more significant and fosters an environment of greater productivity, positive staff morale and reduced turnover. Companies can make a real social impact and build their reputation by aligning with one of Australia’s most trusted charities.

Community Spirit

By supporting Guide Dogs WA through Workplace Giving, your team will be working together to make a big difference in your local community. Not only are employees given the chance to contribute in a smarter way, they also build a sense of pride in their workplace and feel assured they are part of a company that cares.

Make a Difference

Thanks to the support and generosity of Workplace Giving, West Australians living with low vision or disability are able to live independent, rich and rewarding lives through our Guide & Assistance Dog programs.

It costs $50,000 and takes two years to train a Guide or Assistance Dog puppy. Guide Dogs WA is a non-government, not for profit organisation. We rely on the local community to support the Guide and Assistance Dog training program.

How Does Workplace Giving Work?

The amount an employee wants to donate is deducted straight from their salary. This makes it easy to make a difference every pay cycle.

Is Workplace Giving Tax Deductible?

Yes. All Workplace Giving donations are deducted from pre-tax salary and an employee is only taxed on the remainder. This means the tax benefit is received straight away and there is no need to retain receipts. Effectively, a $20 donation would only cost the employee $12.60*

*Exact figures are dependent on the individual’s ATO personal tax bracket.

Matched Donations

An employer can choose to match an employee’s donation to show they share their values and help their contribution go even further.
So, a $20 donation would become $40.

The funds received go directly towards providing vital Guide & Assistance Dog services to people in Western Australia living with low vision, disability or illness.

Getting Started

Depending on the size of an organisation, donations can be set up through the Payroll Department or individually through a third party service such as Good to Give (opens in new window) or Good Company (opens in new window).
