We're proud of our partnerships with some of Australia's best known and loved charities. We assist our charity partners by providing financial support and by leveraging Vodafone’s mobile technology, innovative culture, employees, information and influence to help.
Since 2006, Vodafone Foundation has supported close to 10,000 youths through Young People Connected. This program provides disadvantaged and at risk youth with Vodafone phones and services, so that they can be connected to the support provided by Barnardos, Mission Australia, MMAD and Youth Off The Streets. And of course, so that they can stay in touch with their families and the wider community.
Vodafone’s retail team has got behind Variety, setting a goal to raise $50,000 to purchase a 'Sunshine Coach' to transport thousands of children on educational, sporting and cultural outings, and to therapy and medical appointments. The team have been busy holding trivia nights, Santa fun runs, and much more – and they’re close to reaching their goal. As extra incentive, fundraising up to $50,000 will also be matched by Vodafone Foundation, making the team’s efforts even more meaningful in helping sick, disadvantaged and special needs kids.
