ASIC team members actively participate in our community program that connects our people to the causes and charities they care about.
The program provides opportunities for us to contribute to charity through workplace giving, volunteering and fundraising campaigns.
This year, our workplace giving supporters donated $101,200, distributed to 44 different charity partners, through payroll.
Since July 2019, ASIC team members have also donated $16,085 through one-off giving campaigns for NAIDOC Week, End of Year Giving, and a Bushfire Appeal.
In total, ASIC team members have donated $117,285 to charity during the 2019–20 financial year.
Around 20% of our team members give to charity at work.
ASIC also offers one day’s paid leave for all team members who volunteer in a range of skilled and unskilled activities, including:
- Smith Family iTrack Youth mentoring (National – 32 mentors)
- Pro Bono with Youth Law Australia (National – 54 lawyers)
- Foodbank Victoria (Melbourne)
- Exodus Loaves and Fishes (Sydney)
- Meals on Wheels (Traralgon)
Each year, ASIC’s new graduates also participate in a charity fundraising campaign.
In 2019, our graduate cohort raised $11,420 for Opportunity International Australia. As we adjusted to the COVID-19 pandemic, face-to-face events ceased and our graduates pivoted to a virtual fundraising campaign, raising over $3,000 for four local charities in each state.
