Make a difference and provide vital funds for lifesaving research by choosing to contribute to the Perkins through your weekly, fortnightly or monthly pay.
GIVE THROUGH YOUR PAY
By giving directly from your pre-tax pay, you get an immediate tax deduction without the fuss of claiming at tax time. It’s as easy. Pledge a nominated amount from your salary each pay cycle and it’s taken out before you are taxed (bringing down your taxable income). You can opt out at any time. Just speak to your payroll team to set this up.
Information for employers
Looking to set up a workplace giving scheme can be found on the following websites:
For further information or to confirm the account details of the Perkins, please contact Steve Currie on (08) 6151 0762.
If you make a donation to the Perkins or raise money through a fundraising event, there may be an opportunity for you to double your impact.
Westpac, BHP Billiton and Johnson & Johnson are just some of the many employers with a scheme dedicated to matching the gifts of their hardworking employers.
However, all employers can match your gift and there does not have to be a scheme in place.
You will need to ask your employer if they will match your gift. You should let your employer know why you were motivated to donate and why WA-based medical research is a cause that means so much to you.
Finally remind them that any donation over $2 is tax deductible.

“I set up workplace giving because it’s one of the best ways I’ve found to support the causes I care about. It was easy to organise with my HR team and my donations to the Perkins are deducted pre-tax. It’s convenient and I feel like I’m able to make a bigger difference this way.”
