Payroll Giving

A tax efficient way to support our service

Payroll Giving is an easy way to support our vital work, and a few dollars each week can make a huge difference.

What is Payroll Giving?

Payroll giving is a simple and easy way to support your local Rescue Helicopter. Your donation is tax deductible, and because it's taken directly from your salary, the cost to you is less than the amount you pledge.

For example, when you donate to the Rescue Helicopter with Payroll Giving, you will receive an immediate 33.33% tax credit. This means that if you donate $15, it will only cost you around $10. 

Employee Benefits

Supporting your local Rescue Helicopter through the Payroll Giving scheme provides you with the following benefits;

  • All donations through the Payroll Giving scheme are tax deductible
  • It is easy to setup, you only need to take a few moments and complete one form to start donating
  • You can join, alter or withdraw from the scheme at any time
