Symphony House Berhad in collaboration with WWF-Malaysia launched the Symphony Workplace Giving since December 2011. Symphony House is the first organization to pilot this innovative employee engagement programme with WWF-Malaysia. Symphonians can now contribute to WWF-Malaysia through payroll giving and receive tax-deductible receipts at the end of the year.
Workplace Giving is one of the least resource intensive ways businesses can help support the community. It gives employees a simple, convenient and efficient way to contribute to WWF-Malaysia’s conservation work through monthly contributions, and it helps businesses establish credibility as good corporate citizens.
Under this programme, WWF-Malaysia recently organized a Workplace Giving Day with Symphony House on the 21 June 2012 where Symphonians had an opportunity to learn about marine turtles and the role they play in the marine ecosystem from WWF-Malaysia’s Communications Officer from the Peninsular Malaysia Seas Programme, Ms. Nadiah Rosli who gave a talk titled ‘Guardians of the Sea’. The first 20 Symphonians who signed up had the privilege of winning a mystery gift from WWF-Malaysia.
