Choose to make a difference each pay day by signing up for payroll giving. By making regular donations directly from your pay, supporting Kiwi children and families affected by childhood cancer is easier than ever.
What is payroll giving?
Payroll giving is a voluntary scheme that allows you to make regular donations to Child Cancer Foundation directly from your pay. You choose the amount to donate and frequency of the donation, and it will be taken out of your pay before it goes into your account.
If you donate over $5, you will receive an immediate tax credit of 33% towards your PAYE. This means that while Child Cancer Foundation will benefit from the full donation amount, you will receive a third of it back. You won’t be issued a receipt for your payroll donation and you don’t need to do anything at the end of the tax year, as you’ve already received the tax credits in the form of reduced PAYE.
How to set up payroll giving
If your employer is already set up on payroll giving, all you need to do is provide the below information:
- The amount you want to donate
- How often you would like to donate – e.g. fortnightly, monthly
And that’s it! Your employer will go ahead and get you all set up, and there is nothing else you need to do. Your donation and tax credits for payroll donations will show in your wage records and on your pay slips.
If your employer isn’t already set up on payroll giving, you can send them this flyer or direct them to this page on the IRD website.
