Giving back to those is need is an integral part of who we are at Pindan and we have a proud history of partnering with local charities to help change lives for the better.
We’ve channelled more than A$1 million into important not-for-profit organisations since 2007 and supported the community in countless ways – from the sale of charity homes to taking part in corporate blood donation drives and providing Christmas gifts for children in-need. For more than 10 years we’ve teamed up with four key charity partners.
CANCER COUNCIL WA 2017 – 2020
Cancer Council Western Australia, WA’s leading independent, evidence-based cancer organisation, has been our principal charity partner since 2017.
Our numerous fundraising efforts have raised more than $20,000 so far to help the group fund cancer research, run life-saving cancer prevention programs and offer much-needed support to families affected by cancer. We have dedicated a room in honour of one of our team members, Natasha Curran, who lost her life to cancer at the age of 25 at the Council’s Milroy Lodge facility for regional cancer patients and our staff members regularly take part in the group’s Corporate Volunteering Program.
PARKERVILLE CHILDREN & YOUTH CARE 2014 – 2016
Parkerville Children and Youth Care, a nationally-recognised specialist service provider for children and young people who’ve suffered abuse, is another of Pindan’s key charity partners.
We were thrilled to donate $288,500 from the sale of the Pindan/MBA charity home at River’s Edge in Guildford and a further $57,500 from our internal fundraising efforts.
In recognition of our valued contribution, the group is naming a room at its new Child Advocacy Centre in Midland after Pindan.
CYSTIC FIBROSIS WA 2011 – 2013
The sale of our third charity home at the Q Central Development in Queens Park and staff fundraising initiatives saw Pindan direct nearly $200,000 to Cystic Fibrosis WA over this two-year period.
We were grateful to be able to assist the organisation in its bid to support those with Cystic Fibrosis, the most common life-threatening recessive genetic disorder affecting Australian children.
ASSOCIATION FOR THE BLIND 2009 – 2010
Our partnership with the Association for the Blind of WA – Guide Dogs WA also generated nearly $200,000 for vital initiatives such as the training of Guide Dog instructors, sponsoring children’s places in the Association’s Kindergarten Program and the Social and Life Skills Activities camp, and buying critical equipment for their Industry Skills Centre.
We also sponsored a guide dog puppy named Shadow who became a vital companion to a visually-impaired person. The funds were largely raised through the sale of a charity home at Waters Edge Estate in Viveash.
