Workplace giving

What is Workplace Giving?

Workplace giving is the process of making regular donations to charities through your employer’s payroll system. Employers may choose to match employee donations or donate a specified amount. Together, you and your employer can make a real difference in the lives of those affected by stroke.

How It Works

Workplace giving is a simple, tax efficient and cost efficient way to donate to the National Stroke Foundation.

Donations are made from pre-tax pay, which is reduced by the amount of the donation – meaning that the tax deduction is immediate and guaranteed. There is no need to collect, keep and claim receipts – it couldn’t be easier!

So a $20 donation pre tax costs the donor only $13.70 after the automatic tax deduction, but National Stroke Foundation receives the full $20 (assuming a marginal tax rate of 32.5%).

Make It Happen

Please note: if your employer does not have a workplace giving program in place you will be unable to make regular donations from your pay.
