Workplace Giving is another way to contribute towards making MPN research happen and impacting the lives of those living with the disease.
Ruby Red Foundation works with their corporate partners to provide workplace giving programs to employees.
What is Workplace Giving?
Workplace Giving is where employees give small, regular donations to a charity from their pre-tax pay. It's a simple and very effective way to help make the world a better place.
How does it work?
Through Workplace Giving, employees can select a charity nominated by their employer that they want to support, specifying a regular donation to be taken from their salary before tax each pay cycle.
The employer will then pay the donation directly to the charity, and in some cases match the donation amount specified by the employee.
As donations are deducted from pre–tax pay, the tax benefit for the employee is immediate and there is no need to keep receipts or claim at tax time.
Think about it this way...
