How you can give via payroll
You can give to RMIT to create transformative experiences for our students, researchers and the community. You can set up regular payroll deductions or make a one off payment by heading to the staff giving page when you have your staff website login.
By setting up payroll deductions, you will receive a tax deduction each pay cycle rather than at the end of each financial year. At the end of each year, RMIT will provide you with receipt of your donations.
100% of your donation goes directly to the selected area – there are no administrative fees – and donations over $2 are tax deductible.
