Charity for the year
Many companies focus their CSR activities on one charity for the entire year. By choosing one charity that the entire organisation can support, you can set a fundraising target for the year which is a great motivation for all involved.
Employees can support the Asthma Society through payroll giving, this is where a small donation comes directly form salaries to the society each month.
Companies registered in Ireland can claim a tax deduction for donations of €250 or more in any one tax year as if it were a trading expense.
