Promoting a culture of philanthropy, increasing awareness of the social issues faced by communities in need, and creating opportunities for staff to engage with the community through volunteering and mentoring programs, are fundamental components of the Foundation’s activities and programs it supports, with a focus on the following areas;
• Indigenous communities
• Homelessness & food Insecurity
• Social inclusion
• Mental health & personal crisis
The Foundation works with one Community Partner for each of its four focus areas. Community Partners include Red Dust Role Models, SecondBite, Sports Without Borders and The Inspire Foundation. Click here for information on Community Partner selection criteria.
In addition to the below long-term program, there are various opportunities for industry-wide member fundraising activities. Click here for more information.
Industry-wide community investment
The development of industry-wide community investment projects that provide widespread, innovative solutions to social problems is another key element of the Foundation's work.
We have partnered with HSC & Company, a specialist philanthropy and community investment consulting firm, to assist with the development of this program of work. This will be a long-term project - the cornerstone of the Foundation’s community involvement.
