Northern NSW : Celebrating 40 years Rescue December2015
Workplace Giving DID YOU KNOW THAT DONATING JUST A FEW DOLLARS FROM YOUR PAY EACH WEEK ENSURES THAT NO ONE WILL EVER PAY TO BE ASSISTED BY THE WESTPAC RESCUE HELICOPTER SERVICE? WORKPLACE GIVING PROGRAMS HAVE BEEN AN IMPORTANT AND VALUED WAY THAT OUR COMMUNITY CONTRIBUTES. WELL KNOWN AND CHAMPIONED BY OUR MATES IN MINING AND UNIONS, PAYROLL CONTRIBUTIONS OF JUST A COUPLE OF DOLLARS EACH WEEK ARE MADE BY PEOPLE WORKING IN LOCAL COUNCILS, HEALTH, MEDIA, MANUFACTURING, BUSINESS SERVICES AND SMALL BUSINESS, TO NAME JUST A FEW. After being in a cycling accident, Jared Bartley is so thankful he donates $5 a week to the Service through payroll deductions. ‘Without the Service I would definitely not be here today. I am proud to say I work for a company like BJ Howes Metaland, which is a community partner of the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service, and support in every way possible.’ ‘I was strongly drawn to the Rescue Helicopter when I decided to make a regular salary deduction to a charity. Knowing several people who have needed their help, it made sense to support a charity that supported the community I am part of. Donating a few dollars each pay day is an easy, positive way to help - one less coffee a day is an easy sacrifice to help support such an awesome team of professionals!’ Lisa Jackson, Westpac employee How to get involved Signing up to the Rescue workplace giving program means that each time you’re paid by your employer a nominated amount is automatically made as a tax-deductible donation to the Service. To get involved in this program the first step is to contact a Community Liaison Officer (CLO) in your region. Meet our Community Liaison Officers 1. Your CLO will come out and speak with your employees about the program. 2. An employee signs up to the program by completing a simple form and nominating the regular payroll deduction amount. 3. The form goes to the payroll department where the nominated amount is deducted from the employees weekly, monthly or fortnightly pay. 4. At the end of the financial year, employees are able to claim a tax deduction for the total amount donated.
