Team United: Partners in Change

The good business of giving back

A thriving community is good for business, as is a highly engaged workforce that has the chance to see the impact of their organisation’s Corporate Social Responsibility programs.

That’s why we support innovative approaches to leveraging business expertise, networks and resources to achieve community impact, while delivering best practice employee engagement to inspire business and individual giving.

In 2017, we worked with 50 leading companies to create impact throughout Australia, including welcoming six new corporate partners. From providing pro-bono and technical support, to driving successful fundraising events and workplace giving campaigns, to getting directly involved in giving local children and youth the chance to thrive, our partners have played a vital role in overcoming the social and economic disadvantage that limits the dreams, potential and life chances of vulnerable young Australians.

We sincerely thank all of our partners in change for their life-changing support.

Proving to be the most memorable yet, the 2017 School Ball was not only a fundraising success, it was a wonderful opportunities for our committed partners to enjoy an evening of glamour and elegance while giving vulnerable children the chance to reach their full potential.

The $300,000 raised on the night represents life-changing opportunities for children who might not otherwise get their chance to shine, and is testament to the generosity and dedication of our guests and corporate sponsors who helped make the evening such a success.
