Wishes at Work, our workplace giving program
Wishes at Work makes it easy for organisations and employees to make a life-changing difference, together.
- Workplace giving is simple to setup, through your payroll system
- Employees donate from their pre-tax pay, receiving the tax benefits immediately
- Organisations can choose to match employee contributions to double the impact, supporting CSR objectives
To learn more, call our Partnerships team on 1800 032 260 or get in touch above.
Did you know?
When you give $5 through a matched workplace giving program, it only costs you $3.50*, your employer matches your $5, and Make-A-Wish receives $10. That's the power of matched workplace giving!
*Example applies the marginal tax-rate for employees earning between $37,001 and $90,000pa at 1 March 2019. Excludes Medicare levy.
Corporate volunteering (team-building with purpose!)
During the year, businesses can get 'hands on' in bringing wishes to life through our corporate volunteering program. It's a great way to have some fun and make a meaningful difference as part of the team making wishes come true. For example:
- Crafternoons - get hands on as we prepare for a child's wish (ie. prop making)
- Workshops - a unique opportunity for Partner teams to brainstorm how to bring a child's unique Wish Journey to life
- Help with setting up or supporting a local fundraising event
- Skilled volunteering projects, and more
To tailor a Corporate Volunteering opportunity for your organisation, call our Partnerships team on 1800 032 260 or get in touch above.

More ways to get involved
If it takes a village to raise a child, we think it's fair to say it takes an army (at times!) to pull off a child's life-changing wish. That's why we love businesses who choose to support us in kind, giving their products, services and many acts of kindness to make wishes come true.
For example, our Major Partner Qantas provides an annual allocation for flights, helping reduce costs for wish family travel and allowing us to bring more wishes to life!
Please see Gifts in kind for more info about our policy and the types of gifts we can accept.
Raising money with your customers and co-workers isn’t only a good way to help – it’s great for business!
Whether you get the team together for a morning tea (or bake-off), or take the challenge outside the office (with a golf day or fun run), our team has got your back.
With a range of physical challenges and events across Australia, there are lots of ways you can support Make-A-Wish and bring more wishes to life.
