Give from your Pay

A safe and loving family home is the cornerstone for a happy and productive life, but thousands of New Zealand children and young people experience abuse and neglect instead.

Your gift will help foster and whānau caregivers transform a child’s life and provide a safe and loving home for as long as it’s needed.


Donating to Caring Families Aotearoa through payroll giving helps us to raise the funds we need to provide our education and support services to caregivers.

Payroll giving enables you donate to Caring Families Aotearoa directly from your pay and receive instant tax benefits that reduce your payable PAYE.

It’s an easy way to give regularly to Caring Families Aotearoa, while also ensuring you immediately get the tax rebates you’re entitled to.


With payroll giving, your donation to Caring Families Aotearoa is taken out of your regular pay before it goes into your bank account. If your donation is more than $5, you receive a third of the donation amount as an immediate tax rebate. So, if you donate $15 to Caring Families Aotearoa through payroll giving, you’ll only have a $10 reduction in your take-home pay.

With other forms of donating, you usually have to wait until the end of the tax year to claim your tax rebate. Payroll giving ensures you get the tax advantages immediately.


Are you interested in giving regularly to Caring Families Aotearoa through your pay? Anything over $5 earns a tax rebate. Talk to your employer or payroll team today about setting this up or find out more on the IRD website.
