Other ways we give

Staff fundraising

As part of our ‘Fundraising at Work’ initiative, we match every dollar raised by our staff members for the registered charities of their choice — up to an extra $4,000 per month.

‘Volunteer Day Leave’

Our employees can take an extra day of paid leave each year to do volunteer work for a local charity; in 2018–19, they clocked up more than 1,880 hours.

Red25 Giving Program

Dozens of our staff regularly donate blood to this program, run by the Australian Red Cross Service; just one donation can save up to three lives.
