You may choose to participate in a workplace giving program through your employer and direct your donations to the Frankston Charitable Fund. Workplace giving donations are deducted from your salary before tax, potentially reducing your taxable income. That means you receive a tax benefit immediately rather than having to wait until the end of the financial year.
If your workplace has an existing workplace giving program all you need to do is nominate the Frankston Charitable Fund as the recipient and ask your Payroll Officer to deduct your nominated donation from your gross (pre-tax) salary each pay period. In some cases, your employer may match your donations dollar-for-dollar - be sure to ask them!
Have you considered a bequest in your Will to the Frankston Charitable Fund? It's a wonderful way of leaving a lasting legacy in the Frankston community. It's a gift that keeps giving and will make a significant difference to the lives of people in need in Frankston.
You can do this in a number of ways. You might consider nominating a specific amount of money from your estate, leaving a percentage of your estate, leaving the remainder or part of your estate or leaving a particular item or items such as shares, property, jewellery or other effects of value.
If you are considering making a bequest to the Frankston Charitable Fund we recommend that you contact us first to discuss your wishes.
It is also important to seek the advice of a qualified solicitor or Trustee when making your Will and review your Will every few years to ensure it still reflects your wishes.
