UQ’s Workplace Giving Program offers staff the opportunity to support any area within The University of Queensland through payroll deductions.
How can you benefit by giving through UQ's Workplace Giving Program?
Payroll giving enables you to donate money directly through your pay on a regular basis 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 donation. There is no requirement for you to collect and track receipts for tax time, as a summary of your payroll deduction donations will be included on your PAYG Summary issued in July each year, for inclusion in your tax return.
