ODYSSEY HOUSE VICTORIA: Alcohol and Other Drug Treatment, Training & Support



5 Ways to help Odyssey House change lives

Without even really trying.

Work for a change

You don’t need to wait until the end of the financial year to save tax. Odyssey House Victoria can help you save tax immediately by helping you set up an Employee Giving Program in your workplace.

This program offers you, the employee, the opportunity to automatically deduct donations to Odyssey House from your pre-tax pay. The benefits to staff are immediate as you don’t need to wait until the end of the financial year to claim your deduction.  A gift of just $20 a month (that’s only $5 a week) will help provide vital services and programs to young people and families affected by alcohol and other drug use.

The benefits to you:

•    Receive a tax deduction without having to keep receipts for tax purposes
•    Receive an immediate tax benefit from your weekly, fortnightly or monthly wage
•    You can help Odyssey House plan for the future and save money on administration
•    It’s easy. Once you have signed up, there is nothing else you need to do.
