Queensland Disaster Relief Fund

Like all Australians, Smartsalary has watched the flood disaster unfold in Queensland over the past week with great dismay and we’re now asking ourselves “what can we do?”

We’re looking into a salary packaging solution for pre-tax donations and as soon as we know more we will update you on opportunities in this regard. (see update below)

In the meantime, to help this important cause, we’ve made a modest direct donation to the Queensland Disaster Relief Fund and we encourage others who are concerned to give what they can.

Our hearts and minds go out to those affected in Queensland at the present time.

Update: Smartsalary has now set up a salary packaging facility for donations to be made directly from your pre-tax salary to the Queensland Flood Appeal – you can access this facility by logging in to your Smartsalary account.  For a variety of reasons not all employers have enabled this opportunity so simply check your account to see whether this option is available to you.

Thanks again for your interest and generosity.

    Hi Deven,

    This was great to see, and it does raise a good question of how else can we help, above and beyond straight donations?

    Without doubt, organisations have skills and resources that can support this cause and I’d be curious to see what like-minded thinking from Corporates Australia-wide will accomplish.
