Donating through payroll giving

Payroll giving is a voluntary initiative that enables employees to make donations to approved organisations through their employer's payroll system and get an instant tax credit for their donation.

In other words, you can give as you earn and get your tax credits straight away.

Deaf Aotearoa is an IRD approved donee organisation eligible to participate in payroll giving.

Giving dependable monthly gifts

Giving on a monthly basis has some added advantages:

  • You make one decision. Your gift keeps working month after month to support a cause you believe in.
  • Giving is more convenient. Once you've set it up, your donation becomes automatic until you advise us otherwise.
  • It is affordable. Giving smaller monthly gifts of $10 or $25 or any amount you choose, is an affordable way to support Deaf Aotearoa's work all year round.
  • You receive a single tax receipt. You will receive one cumulative tax receipt after the end of the calendar year.

Your monthly gift makes a significant difference to the lives of thousands of Deaf people in New Zealand every day.

Your monthly gift:

  • Ensures sustainability. A predictable source of income that we can depend on every month means that we have the resources we need to support our services to Deaf people in New Zealand.
  • Helps us plan. Your monthly donation gives Deaf Aotearoa New Zealand a greater ability to get involved in long-term projects.
  • Saves money. Monthly donations mean less paperwork and administration, so it is the most cost effective and environmentally friendly method of giving.

To become a monthly donor simply fill in the monthly gift form, send it to us or visit our Givealittle page to set up a plan.
