The Paradise Kids Workplace Giving Program is a wonderful way for your employees to help us achieve our mission to 'help heal the heartache' for children in our community. It is cost effective and easy for you, as the employer, to establish the program in your organisation. By doing so, you can help make an enormous difference in the lives of the 70+ children that come to Paradise Kids every school term.

Through the Workplace Giving Program, your employees can take advantage of pre-­tax giving. In addition to this, you are provided with a great opportunity to foster community spirit within your team. You may consider matching donations made by employees to demonstrate your corporate social responsibility. Employees can nominate their own amount to give each pay run or can choose to make a one-­off donation. They will also be able to opt-in or opt-out at any time. There are no recordkeeping concerns for your organisation as donations are recorded on payslips and are stated on Annual Payment Summaries for ease of claiming at tax time.
