Workplace Giving Month is designed to build awareness of workplace giving, drive staff participation and donation growth, and celebrate the impact each workforce's collective donations have made in the community.
Any organisation with a workplace giving program is encourages to get involved. You can choose to run promotions, celebrations or initiatives on one day, over one week or throughout the entire month.
ACF Employer Partners who ran campaigns during Workplace Giving Month last year increased employee participation rates by an average of 30%.
To make it easy for you, our Workplace Giving Month Resource Kits are available for ACF Employer and Charity Partners under the log-in section of our website. For non ACF partners, see our "top tips" for promotion during Workplace Giving Month below.
To recognise the efforts of all employers to drive workplace giving growth, the employer with the highest percentage increase in staff participation (as a result of a WGM campaign as at 30 June 2013) will receive ACF's Workplace Giving Month 2013 Engagement Award.
