Workplace Giving

What Is Workplace Giving?

Workplace giving is a simple and effective way for Wine Society staff, management and directors to make regular donations to good causes through pre-tax payroll deductions.

The Wine Society supports this programme by matching all donations dollar for dollar.

How does it help community organisations?

Financial assistance is vital to the ongoing work of charitable organisations. Funding through Workplace Giving enables community organisations to plan activities, goals and budgets more effectively, based on a regular flow on income. This means greater community outcomes can be achieved.

Wayside believes in the creative potential of every human being and in each person's capacity to love and care for his or her neighbour, near and far.
