Donations are made by Surplus Conveyors to many organisations regularly. It’s an integral part of our business plan to ensure our profits are used to benefit others. We have included information below on the charitable organisations we currently support regularly:
National Breast Cancer Foundation The National Breast Cancer Foundation is the leading community-funded organisation in Australia raising money for research into the prevention and cure of breast cancer. We are privileged to work with the public who both give and raise funds and the research community to whom we grant funds to change the health future. Since the National Breast Cancer Foundation was established in 1994, $105 million has been awarded to fund over 374 Australian-based research projects to improve the health and wellbeing of all those affected by breast cancer. We are very proud that the National Breast Cancer Foundation raises and grants funds exclusively for research, because we believe research is the most effective way to end breast cancer. We are also very proud of the fact that the National Breast Cancer Foundation has a commitment to funding research right across the spectrum – from understanding the fundamental basis of the disease to psychosocial research aimed at improving the quality of life for survivors. Our aspirational goal is to achieve zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030. With 37 Australians diagnosed each day and seven dying from the disease, there is still much to do.
World Society for the Protection of Animals The World Society for the Protection of Animals exists to tackle animal cruelty across the globe. We work directly with animals and with the people and organisations that can ensure animals are treated with respect and compassion. With your support, we campaign effectively to combat the world’s most intense and large-scale animal welfare issues. We bring about lasting change by: • helping people understand the critical importance of good animal welfare • encouraging nations to commit to animal-friendly practices • building the scientific case for the better treatment of animals.
Médecins Sans Frontières Australia Médecins Sans Frontières is the world’s leading independent organisation for medical humanitarian aid. Every day more than 24,000 Médecins Sans Frontières field staff are providing assistance to people caught in crises around the world. We have offices in 19 countries supporting these teams, including our office in Sydney. Every year around one hundred Australians and New Zealanders are sent to and supported in the field by Médecins Sans Frontières Australia. Médecins Sans Frontières field staff includes doctors, nurses, administrators, epidemiologists, laboratory technicians, mental health professionals, logistics and water and sanitation experts. The majority of our teams are made up of national field staff from the countries where the crises are occurring with ten percent made up of international field staff. In 1999 Médecins Sans Frontières was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
Animal Aid Animal aid exists to unite people and pets for life! We believe all pets deserve the safety and comfort of a loving home. We aim to provide that opportunity to every stray and surrendered animal that comes into our care, whether that be by uniting a lost pet with their owners or finding new loving families for surrendered animals.
PMH Foundation Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation is the only dedicated fundraising body for Princess Margaret Hospital. All net income raised is made available to the hospital to fund medical equipment, research, expertise, specialist services, capital projects, education and training. Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation has provided more money than any other organisation to the hospital with over $46 million given in the form of grants since 1998. The equipment and services funded by the PMH Foundation ensure that children receive the most advanced medical care, as well as helping the dedicated hospital staff to create a space that is as welcoming as possible for patients, their families and friends.
Leukaemia Foundation – WA Special Needs Children’s Christmas Party The Leukaemia Foundation is Australia’s peak body for blood cancer, funding research and providing free services to support people with leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and related blood disorders, and their families. We have an unwavering focus on reducing the impact of blood cancer and related blood disorders by providing free practical and emotional support, and funding research to improve treatments and find cures. Our work also includes raising awareness of the impact within the community, advocacy, and contributing to the international blood cancer sector to improve quality of life for the person and their family. We receive no ongoing government funding and we rely on the generous support of the community to fund our Vision to Cure and Mission to Care.
