At ACRF, we have witnessed firsthand the transformative power of Workplace Giving programs – forging meaningful connections between businesses, employees, and charities, all working together to deliver significant social impact. 
Each year, Workplace Giving donations play a significant role in enabling ACRF to award high-impact grants, giving Australia’s brightest minds in cancer research the opportunity to continuously look for new and improved ways to prevent, detect and treat all types of cancer. 

A great benefit of Workplace Giving is its ability to weave generosity into the fabric of corporate culture. In the fast-paced and evolving landscape of modern workplaces, businesses are constantly searching for ways to engage their employees, foster a positive company culture, and make a meaningful impact on the communities around them.  
Recent research shows that the relationship between not-for-profits and business is increasingly vital, expected, and essential for corporate success.  

Over 79% of the workforce believe that companies have a social responsibility to set standards of ethical behaviour by actively engaging in philanthropy. 1 

In many Workplace Giving programs, employees have the autonomy to choose the causes that resonate with them personally. This diversity in giving reflects the multifaceted interests and passions within a workforce, creating a wide spread of support and impact across many societal issues.  
Employees become more than just financial contributors; they become advocates and champions for a cause close to their hearts. 

Beyond donations, Workplace Giving fosters a sense of community, purpose, and pride among employees. Knowing that their workplace actively supports charities, individuals feel a deeper connection to their professional endeavours – leading to increased job satisfaction and employee retention. 

Workplace Giving is a testament to the tremendous impact that can be achieved when businesses, employees, and charities unite for a common cause.  

We celebrate the transformative power of Workplace Giving and extend our heartfelt gratitude to all those who choose to be part of this journey towards Backing Brilliant cancer research.
