Workplace Giving

What is workplace giving?

Workplace giving is a simple way to regularly donate to registered charities, with your employer paying your donation directly to your chosen charity each payday.

Giving from your pre-tax income means donations cost you less, while charities receive the full benefit of your donation. Workplace giving also removes the need to collect receipts or wait until the end of the financial year to claim a tax refund.

How to join a workplace giving program

Step 1 – Find out if your employer has a workplace giving program. Melanoma and Skin Cancer Trials is listed with Benevity Causes, which many companies use to facilitate workplace giving to registered charities. If your company uses a different workplace giving provider and Melanoma and Skin Cancer Trials is not listed, please contact us.

Step 2 – Ask your payroll department to deduct your nominated donation amount to Melanoma and Skin Cancer Trials from your gross (pre-tax) salary each pay period.

Step 3 – Your employer will then make these donations to Melanoma and Skin Cancer Trials on your behalf.

If your company doesn’t have a workplace giving program

If you want to participate in workplace giving but your company doesn’t offer this service, contact your human resources team or payroll department and ask for a workplace giving program to be established. Remember to ask for Melanoma and Skin Cancer Trials to be nominated as a charity partner.

Melanoma and Skin Cancer Trials is a registered not-for-profit research organisation (company limited by guarantee). Melanoma and Skin Cancer Trials has an academic affiliation with Monash University, with a dedicated centre supporting its research activities, the Melanoma and Skin Cancer Research Centre, within the School of Public Health and Preventative Medicine.
