Urgent and Pressing Need to Keep Families Safe

There is an urgent and pressing need for targeted, expert intervention and prevention to keep women and families safe. Some women have the support of family and financial means to leave, other women don’t due to years of control and financial abuse.

You can make a difference by giving one woman the space to leave. Donate Today

Workplace Giving

For the individual - Workplace Giving donations are deducted from your salary before tax is applied, thereby reducing taxable income. As donations are made pre-tax, it will only cost you 62 cents for every dollar you pledge (based on a marginal tax rate of 38%). Also donations are automated through your payroll system meaning you get an immediate tax deduction which saves the hassle of keeping receipts for your tax return.  What’s more, if your company matches your deduction – your contribution will make twice the difference!

For employers - workplace giving offers a vehicle to build non-profit community partnerships and boost employee morale. Research shows that such initiatives help to attract and retain quality talent. We can also provide volunteering opportunities for your staff to further their engagement.

For YWCA Queensland, workplace giving is low on cost and administration, maximising the benefits of your donation. Furthermore, workplace giving is often a stable and long term funding source meaning we are able to ensure the sustainability of our work in the community.


Support Our Events

Our work supports people to change their lives, through the development of life skills that assist them to become happy and contributing individuals. We are grateful for any support you can offer, whether it be through donations, attending fundraisers or involvement in our Events. Your support enables us to continue our important work within the community.
