Do you ever think about donating to your favourite charity but never seem to get around to it? To make supporting your community easier than ever, UC is launching Payroll Giving which is now available to all UC staff.
Sign up today to support your favourite charity or charities directly through your fortnightly pay.
How to Sign Up
The link will take you to a personalised, pre-populated UC form from which you need to:
- Select up to three charities you’d like to support
- Indicate how much you would like to be deducted from your fortnightly pay
Please contact the charity or charities directly to share the good news. They’ll be delighted to hear from you.
You can update your preferences at any time to change your contribution amount or stop your donation. To do so, update your preferences on the Payroll Giving form.
Why Sign Up for Payroll Giving?
With Payroll Giving, a 33.33% tax refund is automatically applied to your fortnightly pay. So if you donate $100 to your preferred charity or charities, that’s a refund of NZ$33.33.
Donating to your favourite New Zealand charities through automatic salary deductions saves you the hassle of submitting a tax-receipt to the IRD at the end of the year. With Payroll Giving your refund is automatic.
Which Charities Can I Support?
Staff recently voted on the charities they’d like to see included in the brand new Payroll Giving programme at UC. While four are available to support now, the rest will be available to select in the new year.
A big thanks to everyone for contributing. We saw a wide range of charities represented and it’s clear how much you care about supporting our community.
