To make supporting your community easier than ever, UC has launched Payroll Giving which is now available to all UC staff. Sign up today to support your favourite charity directly through your fortnightly pay.
How to Sign Up
- Select up to three charities you would like to support
- Indicate how much you would like to be deducted from your fortnightly pay.
Please contact the charity for charities directly to share the good news. They'll be delighted to hear from you.
You can update your preferences at any time to change your contribution amount or stop your donation. To do so, update your preferences on thee Payroll Giving form.
Why Sign Up for Payroll Giving?
With Payroll Giving, a 33.33% tax refund is automatically applied to your fortnightly pay. So if you donate NZD $100 to your preferred charity or charities, that's a refund of NZD $33.33.
Donating to your favourite New Zealand charities through automatic salary deductions saves you the hassle of submitting a tax-receipt to the IRD at the end of the year. With Payroll Giving your refund is automatic.
Which Charities Can I Support?
UC Staff voted on the charities they'd like to see included in the brand new Payroll Giving programme. While four are available to support now, the rest will be available to select in the new year.
