Workplace Giving | RAH Research Fund

Become a Workplace Giver and help our researchers make life-saving discoveries.

Workplace Giving is a simple and meaningful way employees and the company they work for can support world-leading medical researchers through regular pre-tax donations.

Best of all, it’s a simple and effective way to make a difference to your local community through employees giving regular donations to the Royal Adelaide Hospital Research Fund from their pre-tax pay.

As well, companies can choose to match employee’s donations dollar-for-dollar, so your business can have double the impact.

Workplace Giving benefits your employees by:

  • Building pride and team spirit in supporting causes they care about.
  • Contributions are taken directly from payroll, so it’s easy for employees to contribute.
  • Your employee’s taxable income is reduced as contributions are made pre-tax, so they benefit every pay.

Workplace Giving benefits your company through:

  • Increased employee engagement. Research indicates Workplace Giving donors have greater affinity with their employer and show increased levels engagement, productivity and staff retention1.
  • Employee Preference. 49% of employees polled ranked Workplace Giving as their preferred method when making charity donations2.
  • Enhanced employer reputation. Over 60% of CEOs see a positive connection between socially responsible activities and attracting new talent3. 
  • Making a tangible difference. In 2016-17 Workplace Giving generated $38 million across Australia, so together we can make a huge impact4.
