For our global charity partners, it has been a full year of dealing with the fallout from the COVID pandemic. We’ve remained steadfast throughout this period in an effort to not only help our partners survive, but to rise to the challenge.
Those already most vulnerable in the community were heavily impacted by lockdowns, financial hardship and isolation. Simultaneously, the ability of charities to meet the soaring demand was compromised by a diminishing number of workers, volunteers, regular donors and crucial fundraising opportunities.
For Goodman Foundation, it was a time to stay the course and hold strong in our support, even if charities decided to re-focus their efforts in new and unanticipated ways.
It was a time to trust that the organisations we’ve partnered with over the years know what their communities need. And to be generous and flexible in how we support them through one of the most challenging years imaginable.
The Goodman Foundation supports charities in three key areas: children and youth, community and community health, and food rescue and the environment.
Our support is offered as:
Funding for projects with defined outcomes over one to three years.
Goodman people volunteering or fundraising for charities.
Workplace giving schemes that equally match contributions from Goodman people.
Donations of our expertise, space, office furniture, computers and other critical items.
