Donations



  • Hi All

    I’m trying to find out how I’d go about something that I believe many Australians would be interested in (maybe even our Mods when trying to raise funds for our beloved Forum )

    I’m currently contacting my local federal member about this so I will keep all updated

    What I want to do or find out whether it is even possible if that we as employees can donate our annual leave (and annual leave only , not sick or long service ) to one off donations

    Personally many of us find stumping up what we feel is a decent donation to some of the horrible things that happen locally or internationally can be hard

    But donating a days annual leave , you don’t necessarily dig into your own pocket and are able to donate far more than you would normally would

    I’ve spoken to my HR boss , but she says there is no way they can possibly do it without a law saying they can (don’t know if she is fobbing me off or not to save work for payroll )

    Wonder what others thought’s are whether it is a good idea or how to try and go about getting the powers to push it through or what powers I need to contact …

    Cheers Happy



  • Good initiative. If you’re flush with leave you should be able to donate it as you see fit.

    The only way I see that is you’re technically double dipping because by donating that leave and not having the day off paid, you’d be at work, so they would be paying you twice?

    Not sure about where you work CB , but I am already able to cash in my leave if I want , it just takes a few weeks to do

    My plan would be you could do it in a weekly pay run if you wanted with the donation

    As I said I have emailed my local Federal member , I’ll see where it ends up 🙏

    You sound like a tight arse 😆

    If your afraid of electronic banking have your financial institution do the donation for you or simply post a cheque 😃

    Are you from the dark ages , watch out for that potato famine

    Anyway getting back on topic , we simply need to concentrate on our own backyard and keep rugby league as the No 1 sports kids want to play and watch in Western Sydney

    Everything will take care of itself once we win that battle :sign:
