Workplace giving

Directly support Queenslanders living with diabetes. Get your workplace involved by joining an existing activity or nominate Diabetes Queensland as your official charity.

Does your workplace offer payroll giving?

Payroll giving is the process of making regular donations to charities through your employer’s payroll system.

Employees can give financial contributions as part of their pre-tax salary. You can give as little as $2 a month or as much as you’d like to – enjoying tax benefits as well. You also won’t have to wait until the end of the financial year to receive your tax deduction.

Employers can support Diabetes Queensland by matching their employees’ contributions dollar for dollar. Together, you can make a real difference in turning diabetes around.

Your employer may have a payroll giving program already in place. If they don’t contact us to find out how a payroll giving program can be created.

How workplace giving helps

Diabetes Queensland relies heavily on contributions from our generous supporters and Corporate Partners. Through workplace giving, you can have a huge impact by helping to fund:

  • Family fun days for children living with type 1 diabetes and their families, where they get to connect with others and learn about diabetes management
  • Public campaigns challenging perceptions about diabetes, aiming to reduce complications from the condition and tackle stigma
  • Psychologist service for people who are newly diagnosed or have been living with diabetes for some time
  • Crucial research to improve services, develop better treatments and search for a possible future cure.

How workplace giving benefits you

Engaging in workplace giving can have a positive impact for your organisation and staff by improving staff engagement, retention and productivity.

Research undertaken by the Australian Charities Fund and the Centre for Social found that 95 per cent of respondents were keen to be involved in workplace giving. The research also showed that people who give are more engaged, more motivated and prouder of their employer.
