UQ Staff Giving Program – Payroll deductions
Together, we can make a difference.

UQ staff members see first-hand the difference scholarship support can make. With your regular payroll donation, you can be part of the growing movement to disrupt educational disadvantage through The Queensland Commitment.

You can join your colleagues and support our dedicated fund, The Queensland Commitment Staff Scholarship.

Important information

Benefits of a payroll deduction

Donate money directly through your pay and receive an immediate tax benefit as you give. Fortnightly pay deductions through the year can have a significant impact without the financial burden of a larger one-off gift.

Claiming for tax purposes made easy

There is no requirement for you to collect and track receipts as a summary of your payroll deduction donations is recorded on your PAYG Summary, issued in July each year, for inclusion in your tax return.*


To set up a payroll deduction, you must be employed on a continuing or fixed term appointment with UQ.
