Workplace Giving
Make a donation through your pay each week/fortnight and put your taxes to work for a good cause.

How does it work?
You choose how much you'd like to give each pay, then donations are deducted from pre-tax pay each pay day, giving you an immediate tax deduction, with no need to collect receipts to claim at tax time. Employers then forward regular contributions to Home-Start.

For example: if you're on a 30c tax rate, a $20 donation before tax will only cost you $13.70 after the tax deduction, but 
Home-Start will receive the full $20. 
That's $1.95/day for a weekly donation or just $0.97c/day for a fortnightly donation.

Any amount from $2.00 per pay is greatly appreciated and 
helps make a difference

We work with families who, for whatever reason, are struggling to give their children what they need. Very often we’re the last chance they have. Your generosity will help us to reach out to parents and children who urgently need Home-Start support.

We already have 22 local Home-Start schemes in NSW and Victoria - and we aim to extend our unique service to every community in Australia.

For every $1 you give to Home-Start Family Services Australia:

90 cents is spent directly on our charitable activities 

6 cents is invested to generate future income/fundraising 

2 cents is spent on governance 

*By investing in us you provide more help to families because of the cost   effective way we work. 

**One full-time co-ordinator can support around 50-60 families in need every week, through the power of our wonderful volunteers
