WORKPLACE GIVING PROGRAMS
Workplace giving is a simple and effective way for employees to regularly donate to charities or organisations that are entitled to receive tax deductible donations, such as SevGen. It is another way for employees to support charities. To participate in a workplace giving program, the charity or organisation you wish to donate to, must have deductible gift recipient (DGR) status, which we do!
Workplace giving is optional. Both the employee and the employer must agree to participate.
To elect to make us your place to give, contact us!
