About

A dedication to active community service has been central to the culture at Jellis Craig since the business’ inception and this commitment was formalised via the establishment of the Jellis Craig Foundation in 2013. Since then, the Foundation’s reach has been felt far and wide, making an impact to communities internationally, nationally and locally.

Central to the Foundations’ objectives and achieving key milestones has been the collective effort by all staff, leaders across the network and the Board. It has enabled the whole of Jellis Craig to strengthen its relationships within the communities it operates in and has allowed staff and the Foundation to make an impact.

In the foundation’s short history, it has been incredibly humbled by the support it has received from offices and staff whose efforts have been used to promote projects and initiatives and most importantly resulted in the authentic relationships the Foundation has developed with its various partners; Hands Across the Water, Very Special Kids headspace and BCNA.

Making a Difference and Donations

The Jellis Craig Foundation’s impact and investment strategy is to encourage and support staff to give back to the communities where Jellis Craig operate and to strengthen the impact of the charitable organisations we partner by funding their projects and initiatives.

The majority of contributions come from each and every Jellis Craig sale, where a percentage of each sales commission supports the foundation. In addition, personal contributions are made by Jellis Craig Staff and offices office initiatives.

The Jellis Craig Foundation welcomes support from the wider community. You can help make a difference by donating to the Foundation directly, actively participating in the charity partners' projects and initiatives, or through fundraising and events.

The Foundation appreciates your continued support and looks forward to working with staff and our communities so the Foundation can make an even bigger impact in the future.
