Employee Giving and event fundraising
While Employee Giving rates remained at 8%, consistent with FY20, there was a significant reduction in the funds raised through Employee Giving in FY21. Anecdotal feedback from our people suggests that this is largely due to the COVID-19 as people are receiving an increasing number of requests for support and avenues to provide support outside of the Employee Giving program.
Employee Giving data comprises employee donations as well as AGL Energy matching. AGL Energy matched employee donations up to a total of $200,000 per year until April 2018. From April 2018 the amount AGL Energy matched changed to $5,000 per year per employee for direct payroll giving.
Fundraising data includes employee donations as well as AGL Energy matching. AGL Energy matched fundraising donations up to $5,000 per event until April 2018. From April 2018, AGL Energy matched up to $1,000 per fundraising page on the Power to Give program, which promotes AGL Energy employees' own fundraising pages.
Funds raised prior to FY18 are rounded to the nearest $100.
Matched amounts are included in the financial year in which the employee donations were made (though the matched payment may have been made after the close of the financial year).
