Together we make a difference

ABOUT US

Turosi Giving is built on the premise that there is power in numbers. A small contribution made by many people can make a considerable difference to those in need when we work together towards a common goal.

The first stone was cast in 2011, when a formal charity organisation was established on behalf of employees within the company. Since then, we have assisted many charities, both locally and abroad, by providing relief and support to people in genuine need of help.
Our employees and business partners have experienced first-hand the rewards that come from giving to those less fortunate.

Turosi Giving is a charity registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profit Commission (ACNC) as a Public Benevolent Institution (PBI).

The purpose of the charity is to relieve the burden resulting from sickness, poverty, disability and other misfortune, with a particular focus on children.

"Alone, I cannot change the world but
I can cast a stone across the waters to
create many ripples.”Mother Teresa

 

Our vision is an organisation where ‘giving’ is firmly embedded into its culture.
Our mission is to present opportunities to our employees through which they can actively contribute towards improving the lives of children. We will inspire our members to take part in programs which will not only benefit others but enrich their own lives in the process.

OUR FOCUS

We believe every child in this world has the right to have their basic needs, such as food, water, clothing, education, healthcare and recreation, met. In reality, this is not the case for many children and their families.

When working with families, we focus on finding practical ways to ease their burden and to provide some relief from their circumstances.

We aim to build solid relationships and in doing so, develop a mutual trust and become change-makers within less fortunate communities.
Our donations are directed into areas where we have identified a real need and where the donation will have a direct, immediate, or long lasting benefit for the recipient.

We believe that by working together towards specific goals and projects, we can truly make a difference in the lives of those who need our help the most.

Project Overseas

A desire to extend our reach overseas saw an expansion of our charity work into Cambodia.

In 2017, a team was sent to explore opportunities where we could make a difference and leave our own unique footprint. Projects were identified and relationships with local leaders were established.

Turosi prides itself on being a diverse and multicultural workplace. Many of our employees have their roots in countries such as Cambodia where, for various reasons, there is widespread poverty, corruption, and exploitation.

This was our way of giving back to the home places of some of our valuable members.

The key to helping people in Cambodia was to raise some much needed funds. A compelling story was presented to guests who attended our Gala Ball in October 2017.

An overwhelming response to this story saw us allocate $100K to this campaign. We were well on the road to creating something special.

The projects identified in Cambodia focus on providing support and assistance to families living in slum conditions who are trapped in a vicious cycle of poverty. By focusing on children and providing them access to education, we hope to improve the prospects for the next generation.

Our intention is to fund programs and projects which provide a sustainable income and can directly impact the future of these communities.

Turosi Giving Charity Ball 2021

Turosi Giving will proudly present its 6th Charity Ball at the Grand Hyatt, Melbourne on Saturday 9th October 2021.

This, our signature fundraising event has become a greatly anticipated fixture on many calendars. With your help over the years, Turosi Giving has distributed more than $1million to those in need. At Turosi we are extremely privileged to have business partners and friends, who share our vision and desire to make a difference to those who are less fortunate. We couldn’t be more proud to stand side-by-side with all of our business partners and it is with the greatest pleasure that we welcome guests back to the magnificent Savoy Ballroom at the Grand Hyatt Melbourne once more.



In a time that will go down in history, we want to come home and celebrate Australia. A lucky country indeed that is grounded, inclusive and comes together time after time, after time to give a helping hand through a difficult period of one’s life. From the vision of a women giving the shirt off her back to save a burnt koala, to a professional surfer punching a great white shark while wading in the water, this sun kissed country is like no other.

For this year’s ball we have chosen the Royal Flying Doctor’s Service as our charity of choice. The night will also be supporting several local organisations ensure we reach as many people in need as we can.

Staying true to our heritage, we will raise money in support of the work the Royal Flying Doctor’s Services does around children and their families. An example of that work is within their face-to-face and telehealth services, their emergency air service to remote and regional locations and their Pregnancy, Birth and Baby website.

The work for this event is well underway and you will be receiving further information shortly. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call me on my mobile or indeed through my email address.

I’m looking forward to coming together and making a difference in the lives of so many across our country.

Operation Community Giveaway

The 28th July, 2017 was an exceptional day…. because it’s not every day you get to give away $100K to charity.

Internally, we named it “Operation Community Giveaway”. We asked our ten committee members to choose a children’s charity which was close to their heart. They were asked to research the charity and report back to us, telling us how the charity could benefit from a donation of $10,000.

But it wasn’t as simple as that; we wanted to produce a short documentary. We contacted each of the charities and asked them if they would be willing to participate in our film which would, in turn, be used to create awareness of fundraising and volunteering opportunities which exist within our community.

We then set off on a road trip, camera person in tow, and visited each organisation together with the committee member who nominated them. On our travels we met many remarkable people; small groups who are each doing BIG things to help children in their care and on their radar.

We were both humbled and excited about the prospect of being able to lend a hand.

We didn’t tell them the real reason for our visit. Instead, we invited them to a special luncheon under the guise of attending the launch of our documentary. We wanted them to witness what we had created with their contribution, as well as for them to get to know other likeminded charities.

It was a very emotional day for all present and it was extremely rewarding for all of the committee members. And to top it all off, each group was presented with a donation of $10,000.

The responses from our guests were priceless. One group was the recipient of $20,000 after one of our committee members, upon viewing some preliminary footage, decided that he would like to contribute his share to this very worthwhile cause.

Days like this are the culmination and result of the hard work of the committee members and the continuous contributions of the Turosi staff.

How wonderful that together we can achieve all of this and to think it started from one cast stone.
