Workplace Giving

Consider the difference you could make to someone’s life and Step Up for CapRescue’s Workplace Giving Program today!

Operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, RACQ CapRescue is staffed full time by highly experienced flight and medical crews.

Each year there is an ever increasing demand on our services and as a community helicopter provider CapRescue looks at many avenues to raise funds. Step Up Workplace Giving is a payroll contribution program that gives you the opportunity to have a positive and lasting impact in your local community.

Donations are deducted each pay period directly from your salary, by arrangement with your payroll department. All you need to do is decide on the amount you wish to give, it’s that easy.

How it Works – Payroll Officer

  1. Set up Capricorn Helicopter Rescue Service on your payroll for employees to contribute.
  2. Ask employees to complete our Step Up Deduction Authority. This gives information on the amount to be remitted and provides a written authority for contributions to be made.
  3. Set up the contribution in your payroll and remit the funds to Capricorn Helicopter Rescue Service.
  4. At the end of the financial year, we will provide tax deductible receipts for all your employees if their contributions don’t show on their payment summaries.
