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.

through newsletters, internal memorandums and on all

Workplace Giving is an example of how a small contribution
made by many people can have a significant impact.

Whilst our participation rate is in line with those of similar
workplaces, our aim is to encourage further participation by
providing regular updates and incentives.
