Payroll Giving

Payroll giving, where offered by your employer, gives you the opportunity to donate to Water Safety New Zealand (an approved donee organisation with IRD) direct from your pay and receive immediate tax credits that reduce your PAYE payable. You don't need to wait until the end of the year to claim your tax credit.

Your donation will be pooled into our Investment Fund for distribution to providers delivering water safety programmes to at-risk groups.

Payroll giving and employees

If your employer offers a payroll giving scheme and you want to join, you need to:

Give your employer:

  • our name: Water Safety New Zealand
  • amount of the donation you want to make
  • pay period, or periods, you want the donation to be made (ie every pay day, every month, etc)
  • Water Safety New Zealand's bank account (01-0564-0006790-00) or postal address (P O Box 10126, Wellington)

If your employer’s scheme allows, you can alter the frequency, amount and donee organisations you choose to donate to.

Thank you for choosing helping us reduce drownings through education and social marketing campaigns to change behaviour.
