Workplace Giving Program

The Workplace Giving Program allows employees under the Members of Parliament (Staff) Act 1984 (MOP(S) Act) to donate directly from their pre-tax pay to one or more of the charities or non-profit organisations listed below. This program provides a benefit to the participating charities and organisations by reducing administrative and fund raising costs, while also providing them with regular donations.

How Does a Workplace Giving Program Work?

Donations are deducted from an employee’s pre-tax pay, reducing the tax paid.  At the end of each financial year, M&PS will inform participating employees of the amount that they have donated during that financial year to enable them to include that amount as a deduction from their taxable income within their tax returns.
More information in relation to workplace giving programs, including tax implications, can be found on the Australian Taxation Office External Site website.

How to Participate

Email the Staff Help Desk stating which charities or non-profit organisations from the list below that you wish to donate to and the amount you wish to donate. Please indicate if you wish to make your donation an ongoing arrangement or a one off donation. A minimum amount of $2.00 per donation is required. You may start or stop your donations at any time by sending another email to the above address. M&PS will process your request and your donations will be deducted from the next available pay cycle.
