Local organisations are the backbone of any community. They unite people for fun, fitness and for philanthropic purposes, too.
As big community advocates, we allocate at least $20,000 each year to support our local community through our charitable foundation partner, Count Charitable Foundation, and run events & other fundraising activites to significantly increase the amount to make the maximum impact for the community.
Our contributions range from partnerships with charitable organisations and community sporting groups, dollar-matching fundraising events and financial support and sponsorship.
In the past five years we have contributed approx $200,000 through direct contributions and fundraising at events.
By calendar year in 2018 we raised a total of $30,500, 2019 $56,073, 2020 $19,975 (thanks covid!), 2021 $38,500 and in 2022 $48,610!
