Corporate & Business Partnerships

Building positive futures with help from our corporate friends

The word ‘partnership’ carries significant meaning in the contemporary homelessness sector because having meaningful, supportive partnerships and relationships throughout the community is known to be fundamental for individuals to lead healthy and productive lives.

Having supportive partnerships and building strong relationships throughout the corporate community is imperative to ensuring the longevity of our Studio and Scholarship Programs. 

With a strong track record of establishing and building long-term, meaningful relationships that have delivered significant benefits and desired outcomes to both their business and the community, we are extremely grateful for the continued support we receive from our corporate partners.

Kids Under Cover’s national reach, innovative approach and strong focus on young people breaking the welfare cycle makes us well placed to help your business deliver on your Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) commitments.

Workplace Giving is a smart way to give

Workplace Giving is an easy and effective way to help your employees make a difference and show them that they can personally contribute to prevent youth homelessness. a

A regular, pre-tax donation straight from your pay is easy to setup and you receive tax benefits.  Workplace giving even provides the employer the opportunity to match employee donations dollar for dollar – delivering double the impact.

With donations deducted from employees’ pre-tax pay, the donation goes even further. Plus, it reduces the employees’ taxable income, so they benefit every pay.
