Make giving count during Workplace Giving Month!
Would you like to help create strong, joyous communities across Australia through an easy, pre-tax donation? Workplace giving, which works a little like salary sacrificing, is a convenient and cost-effective way to make regular charitable donations through your payroll system.
Creativity Australia’s With One Voice choir program is an award-winning social innovation that reaches Australians from all walks of life. Employers and employees – you can help diverse people break cycles of isolation and disadvantage through nominating With One Voice as the recipient of your workplace giving program. This would make a fantastic contribution to your organisation’s corporate social responsibility.
About With One Voice
Creativity Australia’s With One Voice choir program is a ground-breaking social innovation that capitalises on the diversity of its participants to empower and enable communities towards harmony, productivity, wellbeing and happiness. Your contribution to With One Voice is a practical way to help diverse Australians find their voice and open doors to brighter futures.
The science of singing is proven to make you happier, healthier and smarter… but the With One Voice program offers so much more. With One Voice embraces people of all ages and from all walks of life, creating powerful networks and building bridges of understanding between diverse Australians in pursuit of harmony. CEOs, asylum seekers, job seekers, people with depression, people with disabilities, seniors, people experiencing disadvantage, migrants, workers – everyone is welcome!
The With One Voice program is an incubator for social inclusion, empowerment and wellbeing, providing a joyful place for people to find their voice, find friends and mentors, learn English, improve self-esteem, build skills and employability, and find work.
The choirs are led by professional conductors and meet weekly, followed by supper – an important opportunity for participants to network and share their stories. Through the Wish List, participants have granted one another help with resume-writing and job interview practice, work experience and employment opportunities, free singing and guitar lessons, help with English and much more.
Creativity Australia now aims to bring With One Voice choirs to more communities across Australia.
Now is the time to help share the joy of singing With One Voice.
About Workplace Giving
Workplace giving allows employees to make regular charitable donations from their pre-tax pay through their employer’s payroll system. Workplace giving is:
- Convenient. Workplace giving eliminates the need for employees to collect receipts or wait until the end of the year to claim a tax refund.
- Cost effective. Giving from pre-tax income means donations cost employees less, while charities like us receive the full benefit of their donation and avoid high fundraising costs.
- Collaborative. Workplace giving is unique in its ability to bring together employees, employers and the charities they choose to support. When employees and employers combine their donations, workplace giving is living proof that small change can make a big difference and deliver significant benefits to the community through the collective impact of their donations. Australian Charities Fund research highlights this collaboration enhances employee morale, loyalty and pride in their employer.
For employees… Workplace giving enables affordable giving, through a transparent and trustworthy program, with no costly fundraising. Employees are able to make donations in an efficient and tax-effective manner, eliminating the need to collect receipts or wait until the end of the year to claim a tax refund.
For employers… Workplace giving can provide a low cost, administratively simple way to create community/business partnerships and build employee morale, by mobilising significant funding and volunteer involvement.
