What is workplace giving?

Workplace giving is a simple, yet powerful way to donate to WWF India regularly. Your employer will deduct the amount you wish to donate from your salary either monthly, quarterly or yearly and send this to us. Fifty percent of each contribution is tax exempt under Sec 80 G of the Indian Income Tax Act, 1961. This means you are saving your taxes while supporting a cause close to your heart.

Why workplace giving?

Regular donations through workplace giving are vital to support our many conservation efforts in India. Your contribution will help us further our on-ground work to secure long term survival of our country’s rich wildlife and their habitats, while working towards restoring other fragile ecosystems – including free-flowing rivers, lakes, wetlands, and forests, among others. Likewise, your donation will be received at a crucial time when the world is grappling with the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic – which is coined to be a zoonotic disease, meaning it originated from an animal. One of the primary factors responsible for such diseases is determined to be illegal wildlife trade – placing humans in direct contact with wildlife and increasing the possibility of such zoonotic diseases. WWF-India and TRAFFIC India, a trade monitoring network are closely working together to mitigate growing illegal wildlife trade in the country. Your support will help us to curb this illicit trade and prevent the risk future pandemics.

What happens if I change jobs?

No worries It’s simple. You need to set up your donation again with your new employer – the registration won’t follow you to your new job. But we hope you’ll continue to support us.
