Collins Foods Bushfire Support
Like so many people around Australia and across the world, all of us at Collins Foods Limited — Board, Management, and Employees alike — have watched the Australian bushfire crisis unfold with heavy hearts. As a company with a presence in all of the states of Australia, we are acutely aware of the hardships being experienced in so many parts of the country.
To assist with the rebuilding of so many lives, Collins Foods Limited, on behalf of all the brands it operates, is uniting with KFC Australia, the KFC franchise community, and the Yum! Brands Foundation to collectively donate funds to the Red Cross Disaster Relief & Recovery.
The thoughts of all of us at Collins Foods Limited are with everyone affected during this difficult time.
Further detail regarding this support can be obtained from kfc.com.au.
Collins Foods Giving
We are proud to support Australian charities that make a significant impact to everyday Aussies in need, through our Workplace Giving program, Collins Foods Giving.
Our Workplace Giving program provides employees with an opportunity to make a difference to our community by donating to charities through pre-tax payroll contributions. Collins Foods matches employee donations (up to an annual cap of $150k), effectively doubling the amount received by our partner charities. The program was launched in 2008 following consultation with employees to identify the community causes that were of most interest to them. To date Collins Foods have raised over $4.2 million for your charity partners, thanks to our generous staff, customers donations and company matching. Ten years on and we are even more committed to making a difference.
Following a review of our charity partners and some changes to the program to better to align to our growing national footprint, we are proud to support the following five organisations:
Ardoch is a children’s education charity focused on improving educational outcomes for children and young people in disadvantaged communities. We partner with schools and early years services to deliver tailored education support programs that aim to increase engagement in education, build aspirations, enhance learning outcomes and increase the confidence of children and young people living in disadvantaged communities.
