Workplace giving - Rural Aid - Supporting Rural Communities

How Does Workplace Giving Work?

When you choose to generously give even a small portion of your pre-tax income to Rural Aid, everyone feels the benefit. You get to enjoy the tax deduction benefits straight away, without having to wait for End of Financial Year! Even more importantly, our farmers directly receive real, practical support from your gift, ensuring the sustainability of Australia’s farming communities.

Just $5 per week adds up to a big impact.

“I wanted to take the time to write to sincerely thank you for your drought assistance. The gift cards that you sent were very much appreciated. As we are about to go into 8 years of drought with minimal to no useful rain in the past 2 years, things have been extremely difficult and it is also difficult to express how much the assistance / support is appreciated. Please pass on my sincere thank you to the citizens and businesses that have contributed to Rural Aid.”

“Very much appreciated and very helpful. Cannot tell you how much this helps with trying to maintain our breeding ewes as we go into winter.

June and Darryl Joe Kong
