Sydney, NSW — 8 January 2020 – eftpos is tripling employee donations to approved bushfire charities this month in response to the devastating bushfires and the incredible efforts of communities, firefighters and volunteers.
“eftpos and its employees have a long history of giving to Australians in need and many of us want to contribute to the bushfire rebuilding effort,” the head of eftpos’ Charity Committee and Chief Delivery Officer, Paul Jennings, said.
While eftpos has a standing policy of matching employee donations to approved charities up to $3,000 per person per year, this month it will double its contribution for bushfire charities up to $1,500 per employee.
In practical terms, that means that if an employee donates $100 to a bushfire charity, eftpos will donate a further $200, totalling $300.
The eftpos Charity Committee is now looking at other practical ways to assist bushfire impacted areas, as well as giving staff more opportunities to volunteer their time and effort.
eftpos is Australia’s own debit card system, accounting for around 2 billion CHQ and SAV transactions in 2019.
