Workplace giving programs
Where employers have set up a Workplace Giving Program employees may nominate one of the EDA projects as the Deductible Gift Recipient for their donations. Employers will deduct the sum from their salary and pay the sum directly to the EDA project. The donor receives the benefit of the reduced tax withheld for their gift immediately in their pay.
Low interest and interest free loans
You may wish to assist EDA by extending low interest or interest free loans. Please contact the EDA office to discuss the terms and how to formalise a loan.
Gifts of property
