Workplace giving is a simple and effective way for employees to donate to SANE directly from their pre-tax salary, making a collective impact supporting the four million Australians afected by complex mental illness.

Employee monthly pledges

Through our workplace giving program, SANE supports One Million Donors - a national social change initiative encouraging one million Australian employees to give to charities by 2020. Launched by the Australian Government in 2014, the campaign aims to transform the giving landscape in Australia, impacting every charitable cause while delivering huge benefts to employers and staf.

Individuals contribute a small portion each month from their salary and this amount is taken before tax is calculated which reduces their taxable income. The tax beneft is immediate, rather than waiting until the end of fnancial year.

Businesses can enhance the impact of workplace giving by matching their employees' giving, either on a dollar-for-dollar basis or up to a pre-determined cap. They can also actively encourage employee engagement in events, volunteering, skill-sharing and in-kind support.Workplace Giving support sustains the SANE Help Centre phone, chat and email services which are currently 100% community funded.

How to give

Your organisation may choose to issue the funds directly to SANE or through an external workplace giving provider or platform.

SANE is registered to receive workplace giving funds via the following community platforms:

SANE also partners with Catalyser, an enterprise platform that provides businesses with tailor-made solutions including pop-up campaigns during peak times of the year - for example, Mental Health Week, Christmas and EOFY which is the June workplace giving month.
