Giving back to those in need
Smartgroup is committed to positively contributing to the communities in which we live and operate.
In 2018, we proudly supported a wide range of community and charity organisations directly and via employee-led activities. We are looking to continue this great work in 2019 and beyond. To assist us in doing so, Smartgroup Foundation was established with an annual grant from Smartgroup Corporation Ltd to be directed to certain charities with Deductible-Gift-Recipient (DGR) status.
While we recognise that there are thousands of incredibly worthy causes in our local community, nationally and internationally, the Foundation will initially focus on grass-roots charities as determined by Smartgroup employees. Through an employee survey conducted in July 2019, employees told us that they would like the Foundation to focus on projects which support:
- Animal welfare
- Children’s illnesses and disabilities
- Mental illness
- Children and families at risk
Unfortunately, no further grant applications are being accepted for 2020. We hope to commence receiving applications again in 2021 and will update this page with dates once known.
