Appco Australia’s latest charity donation helps deliver programs to young people
Updated: Dec 10, 2018
Employees at Appco Australia have donated $1,000 to The Beacon Foundation through the company’s workplace giving program, The Appco Gives Back Foundation.
“The donation from The Appco Gives Back Foundation will allow Beacon to deliver its work readiness activities to more young people from communities that need extra support,” said Scott Harris, CEO at The Beacon Foundation.
Each month, Appco Australia employees nominate not-for-profit charities and causes they would like to support. Since the initiative began, the Foundation has donated to various charities from indigenous programs and youth outreach support to medical research.
The Beacon Foundation assists young Australians in disadvantaged communities and areas of high disengagement and unemployment to transition from education to meaningful employment.
The Australian charity takes a preventative approach and works with schools, businesses and communities to provide real pathways into employment, preparing young people for the workplace, long before leaving school.
Scott Harris added: “We know that the majority of students who participate in our programs come away armed with important transferrable skills and many say they’ve grown in confidence about their future. Thank you again.”
The Appco Gives Back Foundation is governed by Good2Give, which is a not-for-profit organisation registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission that helps businesses and donors to give.
