Direct from Salary Giving

Direct from Salary Giving is about staff doing something good by supporting initiatives they care about at Massey.

Staff giving can help transform a student’s life through scholarship, make possible a special project at Massey, or lead to that important scientific breakthrough.  A small gift each fortnight out of your salary can do something good and have a big impact at Massey.

If you would like to support students, research and teaching at Massey University you can do so by donating to the Massey University Foundation through the Direct from Salary Giving programme. The Foundation is a separate trust and registered charity that fosters philanthropy and administrates gifts to the university.

Direct from Salary Giving, also known as Payroll Giving enables you to donate directly from your fortnightly pay and receive an immediate tax relief of 33.33% on donations of $5 or more. This means a donation of $10 will cost you $6.67 and you do not need to wait to claim a rebate at the end of the tax year.

Massey University also generously match-funds all donations made, meaning every donation you make from your salary is doubled before it reaches the Foundation.

As a registered charity, the Foundation is governed by its own board of trustees and all donations are held externally from the University. You can choose which fund to donate to, depending on your interests. Whether it’s our endangered native wildlife, heritage buildings or student scholarships, there’s over 20 funds to choose from and you can rest assured knowing 100% of your donation will reach the fund of your choice. Click here to see a list of funds you can donate to.

The decision to donate is entirely voluntary and all donations are treated as confidential. You can stop or change your donation at any time and you can opt to have your donation kept anonymous – it’s entirely up to you.

There are around 3000 employees at Massey, so together University staff have the ability to make a big impact on the Foundation's ability to fund scholarship, research, activities and facilities that will ensure Massey remains a world-class institution. Even a regular gift of $5 makes a difference.

You can also choose to make a one-off donation if you prefer.
