Become a workplace giver Workplace Giving enables you, as an employee, to make pre-tax donations to PKD Australia directly from your pay. By giving through your workplace, either through a payroll program or a workplace giving platform such as “Good2Give”, your donation is deducted by your employer directly from your pre-tax pay. This means there is no need to hold onto or search for, your charitable tax receipts come tax time. What is more, the tax you would normally pay on the amount you donate will go to PKD Australia with the Government forfeiting any tax on the charitable dollar, meaning your goodwill goes further.
Your donation, along with reducing your taxable income, will make great strides in funding Australian PKD research as we work towards a cure for PKD. Our hope is that no more women, men or children die from this disease, that is passed down from generation to generation and affects between 5000 and 6000 Australian families.
Some companies also offer a matched giving program whereby your donation to PKD Australia is matched by your employer, effectively doubling the funds that will support the best Australian researchers who are actively working towards interventions and treatments that slow the progression of PKD, with the hope to one day cure this genetic condition.
