Workplace Giving

What impact can you make for animals?

Did you at any one time there are approximately 180 animals in care at Little Oak Sanctuary, costing over $200 per day and close to $70,000 per year for their basic care alone.

This amount does not include our administrative costs. Little Oak Sanctuary does not receive any government funding, has no paid staff, and the majority of our costs are funded by the generosity of the Sydney and Canberra region communities.

How does workplace giving work and how does it help?

Donations made through our workplace giving program come from your pre-tax pay. This means that the tax deduction is immediate and will appear on your pay slip.

Additionally, this means that your donation provides a greater dollar for dollar benefit than if you were to donate any other way. As an example, if you earn a salary of $55,000 and you donate $20 a month, Little Oak Sanctuary receives the full amount whereas the cost to you is only $14.91.

  • Ask your employer to enter into a Workplace Giving Program;

  • Nominate Little Oak Sanctuary as your preferred charity; and

  • Inform your employer that you wish to make regular donations and the amount you wish to donate each pay cycle.
