Local community projects

Grassroots organisations, led by passionate volunteers, are the fabric of the communities we serve. By providing local support through small grants and initiatives, we’re able to reach out to local leaders across the nation and make a difference in their communities. We collaborate with national organisations to support grassroots community projects at the local level. Here are some of the initiatives we support:

Drought relief

Our approach to the current drought across Australia has been to mobilise and connect the community to relief and recovery efforts through the following activities:

  • Accepted donations for the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Appeal in Post Offices across the country
  • Matched employee donations to organisations through our Workplace Giving platform
  • Donated $100,000 to the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal
  • Developed a special Drought Relief Stamp Pack where for every $5 stamp pack sold, we donate $2 to Rural Aid
  • Partnering with ReachOut to help improve youth mental health and resilience
