  • All donations are tax free
  • No need to keep receipts
  • Immediate tax deduction
  • Simple and flexible program managed for you
  • Opportunity to receive feedback from your charities of choice  


your donation matters

In 2013, the generosity of UOW staff members:

  • Funded the Headspace Wollongong “Managing Mental Health Group” to educate young people about mental illness. 
  • It also allowed the Australian Indigenous Mentoring experience (AIME) to employee more casual staff in Wollongong and South Coast to reach more schools in Wollongong, Bega and the Shoalhaven, and
  • Staff contributions restored sight to 225 people in the developing world through the Fred Hollows Foundation.

That’s just some of the amazing results of Staff generosity.  Your donations made a real difference in the lives of our community! 

What can we do together in 2014?
