The team at Turanga Health have donated over $13,000 to The Sunrise Foundation (Sunrise) since they started Sunrise Workplace Giving in July 2015.
Turanga Health introduced the workplace giving scheme to allow staff the opportunity, if they would like to, to donate to Sunrise each pay day. Donations are automatically deducted through payroll and forwarded to Sunrise.
Regular donor Billy Babbington says it’s great being part of workplace giving.
“I don’t miss the money I donate every week and I really enjoy giving to a cause that is helping our community.”
Sunrise workplace giving is not only an easy way to give back to the community, it also has an immediate tax benefit. For every dollar donated, the government pays one third, which is a win-win situation for both the donor and Sunrise.
Linda Hardgrave has chosen to donate $10 a week, of which the government pays $3.33, meaning her pay packet is down just $6.66 a week.
Linda likes the annual updates Sunrise sends as it’s nice to see how much she has donated and how much they’ve given as a team.
“It was a nice surprise to find I have donated $1,700 in just over three years, that’s incredible”.
Maria Samoa believes practice starts at home with whanau and communities.
She is proud of how the Turanga Health team have taken to workplace giving and says “working together for our community is just the kind of thing Turanga Health is all about”.
