Good2Give is proud to announce that we have partnered with Westpac Group to conduct a trial to test collective giving in the workplace. This initiative, referred to as ‘Giving Circles at Work’ is a first in Australia. According to Westpac Group Head of Sustainability, Siobhan Toohill,

“Westpac Group has a long history of helping our employees support the charitable and grassroots organisations that strengthen our communities. The trial provides employees with the opportunity to be involved in the development and testing of an innovative model of collective giving in workplaces.”

Our research partner is the Centre for Social Impact at Swinburne University of Technology, who will independently evaluate the effectiveness of collective giving in the workplace, publicly releasing a full report in mid-2020. This Good2Give-led initiative is supported by the Prime Minister’s Community Business Partnership and is funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services. For more information, read the full media release from the Department of Social Services here.

Good2Give continues to make giving even easier, with the introduction of Tap2Give terminals. When paired with a Good2Give Foundation account, this service provides an end-to-end solution that makes it easy for employees and customers to ‘tap ‘n’ go’ to give to charities. Good2Give clients have been using this new service at events, in office foyers, and more, to great success. With the Tap2Give terminals, your business can reduce administration time, increase flexibility on your giving programs and have peace of mind knowing that the terminals are safe and secure with the latest encryption software installed. If you would like to find out more information on our Tap2Give terminals, please view our brochure here.
