Workplace Giving

Workplace giving is a tax-effective way to support children in your community with special needs. Making direct donations from your salary is such an easy way to give.

Get started

Donate your hair

For a child or adolescent, losing their hair due to illness or disease can have a devastating impact on their self-esteem. Your hair can be made into a wig which can positively change their life.

Hold a movie night, a trivia night, a karaoke contest, or a talent show. You are only limited by your imagination!

Host a morning tea, a special dinner party or a picnic in the park. Dress-up in your finest for a great cause!

Make birthdays and special celebrations count for kids in need too. Ask friends and family to make a donation instead of giving gifts.
