Workplace and Payroll Giving

How to Help?

It doesn’t matter what line of work you are in, if you would like to do something to help disadvantaged Victorian kids, talk to us. Let’s share resources, talents and knowledge in ways that can benefit both your business and the community.

Regular giving provides important income that supports our ability to respond to immediate requests for assistance.

Every donation helps.

State Schools’ Relief is different because:

Every dollar helps

Every dollar donated goes directly to Victorian State school children

Unique Service

No other Australian State or Territory has a similar Organisation

Exclusively for VIC Govt Schools

The only criterion is that the child is enrolled at a Victorian Government school.  Every circumstance is different – there are a variety of situations where the child may need support such as poverty, neglect, homelessness, financial hardship, family violence, illness and the devastating effects of house fires and natural disasters.

Help through resources

We don’t provide money directly to the parents or children – we provide practical assistance directly to the child through quality school clothing, generic uniforms, footwear, socks and underwear free of charge or by authorisation to purchase from their school shop or supplier on a co-payment basis

New opportunities

We are always looking for new ideas and businesses we could partner with to provide more disadvantaged Victorian children opportunities to succeed in education.

Regular Donations Help

A regular donation to State Schools’ Relief could mean the difference between a child who becomes withdrawn and a child with the confidence to get through the school day.

Start Payroll Giving


Why donate to State Schools’ Relief?

State Schools’ Relief has many generous supporters who kindly make tax deductible donations through their payroll each fortnight. One of our givers have told us why:

“Every time I see the look of relief on a parents face when we suggest sourcing uniforms from State Schools’ Relief and then the look of joy on the children’s faces when the parcel arrives, I know that supporting this cause directly improves children’s lives. It is done quietly, with no fuss and allows the children to feel part of the school without standing out due to their family background” – staff member, Dandenong Primary School


What is the process?

Payroll giving can be completed in one of two ways:

  1. Logon to educate and click the Payroll Donation Button.
  2. Fill out the authorisation form and return to your Business Manager for processing. Business Managers instructions for completing the payroll donation can be found by clicking “Payroll Giving” under Resources on this page.

All money goes to the kids

Every dollar you donate goes directly to kids in need. The tax benefit is immediate: if you donate $20.00, only around $13.00 will be deducted from your take home pay.

Easy and Tax Effective

Workplace Giving is a simple and tax effective way for employees to regularly donate, enabling State Schools’ Relief to provide uniforms and shoes to Victorian kids in need.
