By making a regular donation to Hunter Life Education through workplace giving you are helping to ensure that all children in our community have access to Life Education and are empowered to make healthy lifestyle choices and live to their full potential. No amount is too small or too great. Each donation is greatly appreciated and goes directly to support children in the Hunter.
Workplace giving to Hunter Life Education allows employees the opportunity to make a significant impact on the work of Hunter Life Education by donating money on a regular basis through their payroll system.
A workplace giving program allows you to make a difference to the work Hunter Life Education does every pay cycle. Your donation will be used to cover the costs of delivering Life Education to children throughout the Hunter including program licensing fees, bus transport to our centre in Edgeworth, Mobile Learning Unit towing to rural and remote communities and class room maintenance and upgrades.
Benefits to Employee
The donation amount to Hunter Life Education is deducted from your pre-tax salary for each pay period therefore most people get an immediate tax benefit each time they donate.
Rather than a large one off donation, donations are spread over the course of the year in a tax efficient way. You do not need to keep receipts or wait for the end of the financial year to claim a tax benefit for these donations.
