Workplace Giving

What is workplace giving?

The Workplace Giving Program asks employees from the Ballarat region to make regular contributions through their payroll. These contributions are channelled into the Ballarat Community Fund, which is distributed to community projects each year through a granting process, or to direct sponsorship of a child through the Ballarat Imagination Library.
