UQ staff make a difference each and every day. Many extend this impact by supporting causes at UQ they are passionate about through tax-deductible giving.    

As a staff member, you can select from a variety of gift and payment options to suit your individual circumstances – including one-off gifts, or through pre-tax payroll deductions. All donations are gratefully acknowledged, with 100% of your gift going directly to the cause of your choice.

Donate by payroll deduction – the most convenient and affordable way to give.

What are the benefits of a payroll deduction?

A payroll deduction enables you to donate money directly through your pay and receive an immediate tax benefit as you give.

By spreading your donations through fortnightly pay deductions over the year, you can ease the financial burden of making a larger one-off gift. 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.

How do I set up or change a payroll deduction?

To set up a payroll deduction, you must be employed on a continuing or fixed term appointment with UQ and register for staff payroll deductions, click here to register.
