Foundation Week activities contribute $3 million to community organisations globally

01 Dec 2015

Macquarie staff and the Macquarie Group Foundation contributed around $3 million to community organisations globally as part of its annual Foundation Week held in October.

From themed bake sales in Manila to a business clothing drive in Sydney, a high-tech high tea between seniors in London and New York, veggie garden volunteering in Johannesburg and a dine by donation event in Auckland, thousands of Macquarie staff were involved in 215 activities benefiting a similar number of non-profits.

Staff made the most of the special ‘2 for 1’ matching for team fundraising events, with amounts up to $5,000 double matched by the Foundation.
