Workplace giving program

Workplace giving is a simple and tax effective way for employees to make regular donations to a cause they care about.

You can help fight the single biggest killer of Australians – heart disease 

Workplace giving is a simple and tax effective way for employees to make regular donations to a cause they care about. But importantly, it allows you and your employees to rally around a cause – heart disease.  

Through your organisation’s workplace giving program and your staff's generous support, the Heart Foundation funds life-saving research and works to improving heart disease prevention and care for all Australians.  

Workplace giving is a win-win-win for employees, employers and the Heart Foundation. 

  • For companies, workplace giving is a smart way to demonstrate a strategic commitment to corporate social responsibility by making an investment in your community.  
  • For employees, it provides an opportunity to make a positive difference to the organisations you support. 
  • As a charity, the Heart Foundation relies on donations from people like you. You can make a big difference to the heart health of many Australians while simply going about your day-to-day work. 

What’s the impact of your donation? 

Since 1959 we have pledged over $670 million to directly and indirectly fund research and understanding into how to weaken and defeat Australia’s no. 1 killer. These are some of the examples of the impact of valuable donations;

THE AUTOMATIC PACEMAKER
The Heart Foundation research is behind numerous medical innovations. One of the best-known is the first automatic pacemaker. Heart Foundation funding supported both Dr Rowan Nicks’ work to develop the device and Dr Graeme Sloman who played a role in the surgery to implant Australia’s first permanent pacemaker.

UNDERSTANDING CHOLESTEROL
In the 1990’s, The LIPID Study (Long Term Intervention with Pravastatin in Ischaemic Disease) led by the Heart Foundation, examined over 9,000 men and women to understand the benefits of Prevastatin to reduce cholesterol levels. The landmark study proved that the drug could prevent thousands of heart attacks and strokes each year. Today, statins are the most prescribed drug in Australia.

INTRODUCING CORONARY CARE
One of the biggest impacts on heart attack survival rates has been the dramatic improvements in coronary care. The Heart Foundation was an early champion of the need for specialist treatment for heart attack victims, sponsoring the first coronary care units in Australian hospitals in 1962 and the first specialist coronary ambulance in 1969.

Your donations can continue to contribute to innovations like these in the future.
