Workplace giving

Help find new cures for disease through Workplace Giving

Help discover a cure for some of the world’s most challenging disease and gain tax benefits by making a regular donation via the Hudson Institute’s Workplace Giving Program.

Donations through our Workplace Giving program are deducted from your pre-tax (gross) salary, so they reduce the amount of tax you pay.

It’s easy. Regular donations are automatically deducted from your salary by your payroll office, so you receive the tax advantage immediately, rather than at the end of the financial year and there is no need to keep receipts and claim them on your annual tax return.

Your small regular donation of even $1 a day makes a huge difference when combined with those from some of your colleagues, will make a huge difference. They help our scientists to confidently plan their research, secure in the knowledge of reliable ongoing funding.

It’s also satisfying because 100% of your donation will directly support our research and no administration or other costs are deducted.

Together, you are your employer can make a real difference to the health of humanity.

They are quick and easy to establish through your regular payroll system and there is little cost to your business.

Many employers also choose to support their staff’s philanthropic efforts by implementing a Matching Gift Program, matching staff contributions dollar-for-dollar as a further incentive for them to take part.
