What is The A&G Difference Giving Platform?

A&G celebrates the power of our people to make a difference to the community. Through this website you can give your time or money by making a pre-tax donation to charity, fundraising for a cause or volunteering to work on a community project.

Why has A&G introduced The A&G Difference Giving Platform?

The A&G Difference Giving Platform is part of our commitment to support our people to make a difference in the community. We know that A&G's contribution to the community is an important part of your health and wellbeing. That’s why we’ve partnered with GoodCompany to develop this website to make it easy for you to volunteer, fundraise and donate to the charity of your choice.

Which charities are on The A&G Difference Giving Platform? How do I add one?

There are more than 2,000 charities listed on the platform.

Charities must meet certain criteria to join the program including Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) Item 1. You can check to see if a charity is DGR item 1 by searching the Australian Business Register here.

If a charity you’re passionate about is not registered with GoodCompany and they meet the DGR criteria, please let us know if you are willing to champion their cause via advocacy, donations, volunteering or fundraising. Details of the charity can be emailed through to support@goodcompany.org

Please note: It’s free for charities to join GoodCompany and list volunteering roles. If a charity wishes to register for donations that is a small annual membership fee of $300 a year (ex GST).

Does 100% of my donation go to the charity?

Yes. 100% of your donation goes directly to the charity. A&G covers all administration costs associated with the platform.
