Workplace Giving is one of the simplest, most cost-effective ways to support the work of Baptist World Aid.
Your donations come from your pre-tax pay immediately reducing your taxable salary. Your giving is automated and convenient, reducing the administration on your end and ours. One less direct debit to manage and no need to retain receipts for tax time!
Your regular gifts, in the hands of hard-working families, can transform marginalised communities giving them agency and tools to overcome poverty.

Workplace Giving also provides the opportunity for employers to match employee donations. Individuals can double their impact by asking their employer to match their giving. This builds an attractive staff culture that is collaborative, generous and outward focused.
With an employer match, whole businesses and organisations can build a relationship with Baptist World Aid, getting behind the work of our local Partners together. For employers, matching the regular gifts of staff is also a simple way to increase the social impact of your business.
As a workplace giver, you’ll be part of our community of passionate Better World Ambassadors. Through our Christian Partners, your gifts will be directed to places where hunger, poverty and injustice hit people the hardest.
By giving to Baptist World Aid, you’re providing a consistent and predictable source of funding for our local Christian Partners’ powerful projects in 24 countries around the world.

Your questions answered.
One of the key benefits of Workplace Giving is that you receive an immediate tax refund, rather than having to wait to claim it at the end of financial year (EOFY). Your refund for each donation is included in your pay.
Your Workplace Giving donations come out of your pre-tax income, reducing your taxable income amount.
You don’t need to keep record of your Workplace Giving donations for tax time—your employer will include your annual donation amount on your PAYG Payment Summary.
You’ll receive a non-tax-deductible receipt in acknowledgement of your donation (dependent on your receipting preferences). Receipts issued for Workplace Giving are non-deductible because you will have already received the tax benefit and aren’t able to claim any further refund in your tax return.
You do not need to keep record of your receipts for tax time. Your employer will provide you with your annual donation amount on your PAYG Payment Summary at the EOFY. You can use this to record your Workplace Giving donation total in the necessary field on your tax return.
Currently we’re only able to transfer Better World Ambassador regular giving arrangements. Unfortunately, we’re not able to process Child Sponsorships through Workplace Giving. If you’d like to change your regular gift and become a Better World Ambassador, please contact our Supporter Engagement Team at [email protected] or 1300 789 991.
You can adjust your Workplace Giving donations directly with your employer. If you do make any changes, please let us know, so we can have your giving arrangement up to date on our end. You can do this by logging into My Account online or contacting our team at [email protected] or 1300 789 991.
You’ll need to set up your donations again with your new employer as the registration won’t follow you to your new job. Please contact us if you have any issues or you would like your regular giving to be managed directly by us, outside of the Workplace Giving program. We hope you’ll continue to partner with us as we work towards a better world for all.
Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Romans 12:1 (The Message paraphrase)
