The Telco Together Foundation is a member based organisation. All Foundation costs are funded by member donations, which allows 100% of all funds raised through fundraising activities to go directly to our four Community Partner charities.
In addition to supporting fundraising initiatives, your membership donation is used for the development of key strategic projects in support of the wider charitable sector. Current projects include Text Giving, Small Change Big Change and the Skills Exchange.
Telco Together will work with your HR team on CSR initiatives in line with your organisation’s priorities. This might include:
- Establishing and supporting a workplace giving program
- Facilitating volunteering activities (individual or team based, skilled volunteering)
- Office-based or event based fundraisers
The Skills Exchange
The Skills Exchange has been developed as a place for charities and skilled tech specialists to come together to solve problems, to increase charity capabilities around the use of technology, and to increase the awareness of the skilled specialists about the challenges charities face in their daily operations.
Telco Together can facilitate a variety of events that allow your employees to use their ICT skills to support charities.
Telco Together has a proven record of successfully incorporating a community element into corporate events. Depending on the event format, we can facilitate a fundraising or volunteering element that both adds a memorable experience to event attendees, and achieves a social outcome. Examples of such events are Cisco Live, Vocus Dealer Conference, ACOMM Awards.
