The Vodafone Foundation works to improve the health of Australians through technology. We call it ‘connected for good’ and it is part of TPG Telecom’s commitment to make a difference in the lives of our customers and the communities where they live.
Community investment through the Foundation plays an important role in our overall approach to operating a sustainable business.
Since 2002, the Foundation has donated more than $26 million to a range of important causes. In 2020, the Foundation distributed grants of over $876,000 to the Foundation’s partners and more than 107,500 lives were improved through the Foundation’s partnerships.
The Foundation empowers all TPG Telecom staff to support its charity partners and charities they are personally passionate about, through volunteering, matching staff fundraising and workplace giving. The Foundation is the number one driver of engagement among employees
In 2020, we matched employee donations of over $123,000, of which $100,000 was given to the Australian Red Cross for the Bushfire Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund.
The Foundation’s Trustee Board is comprised of senior TPG Telecom employees and two independent directors. The Board is responsible for the governance and financial management of the Foundation, and ensures that the Foundation delivers on its purpose and goals.
The Foundation currently supports the Garvan Institute of Medical Research, Hello Sunday Morning and Infoxchange through grants and in-kind support for smart technology to help Australians lead healthier lives.
