TechnologyOne gives back, supporting disadvantaged youth programs across the globe in 2015
Australia’s leading enterprise software provider TechnologyOne (ASX:TNE) has closed out an incredible philanthropic year, with the company and staff working together to support deserving causes as part of its charitable Community Works program.
The company this year provided donations to its major charities The Salvation Army, Mission Australia, World Vision and The School of St Jude in Tanzania. This included support for 20 ongoing disadvantaged youth programs across Australia, New Zealand and United Kingdom.
Together, TechnologyOne and its employees also raised $60,000 for The School of St Jude to develop its first ELearning program, providing students with improved access to the Internet, technology, mobile devices and quality education, to help break the poverty cycle.
“At TechnologyOne, we operate with respect and integrity and our people are empowered to make a difference,” said TechnologyOne’s Executive Chairman Adrian Di Marco.
“Our ongoing investment in the community is part of an annual program of internal fundraising events, corporate and sporting sponsorships, and volunteering.
“Our Community Works program supports the development of underprivileged youth within our communities, by empowering them to transform their lives and create their own pathways of success.
“The major charities we support each have a strong commitment to developing underprivileged youth, which aligns with our strategic goal.”
This year the company also assisted a customer, National Bank of Vanuatu (NBV), in its time of need. TechnologyOne employees raised funds to provide emergency support for NBV’s staff and families to rebuild after the Cyclone Pam devastation in Vanuatu. With many suffering the total destruction of their homes, TechnologyOne’s Cyclone Pam relief campaign has enabled them to rebuild.
As well as supporting philanthropic endeavours, TechnologyOne’s Community program encourages its people to be healthy and active by funding their participation in a variety of events.
“It has been one of the biggest years for our TechnologyOne athletes, with over 20 per cent of our people competing in many different sports and events,” Mr Di Marco said.
“This is a great program that encourages the health and well being of our people, and supports charitable giving.”
