Tech for Good – Social Impact
Merit Recipient

Traditionally, Corporate philanthropy was very much the “Chairman’s Choice” or the Chairman’s wife choice. Fortunately, technology has unlocked the “democratisation of giving” whereby today all staff and stakeholders, from all kinds of unique backgrounds, personalities, life experiences and beliefs can engage in corporate philanthropy and Workplace Giving – choosing to give to the charities closest to their hearts. GoodCompany was founded for this express purpose; to make workplace giving democratic, accessible, inclusive, easy, meaningful, diverse and measurable.

Over the last 21 years, GoodCompany has facilitated over 200,000 hours of volunteering and helped raise over $21m through its platform. This has been achieved through Employers of Choice like OPTUS, IAG, AGL, MYOB, NBNCo, Mirvac, Medibank, Origin Energy and CSL choosing to implement our GoodCompany SaaS Workplace Giving Platform. By connecting these companies and their staff to over 1000 different and diverse charities right across Australia we bring to life their promise of Diversity and Inclusion. 2 of 5 Similarly, many of the 1000+ charities we support have at their very core a mission to celebrate and promote cultural diversity, racial diversity, religious diversity, age diversity, sex and gender diversity, sexual orientation and support those with disabilities. By supporting these charities with donors, matched donations, fundraisers and volunteers, we help them achieve their mission.

In addition to this, GoodCompany is also committed to the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals. These are designed to be a “blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all” and the goals include Gender Equality and Reduced Inequalities.

GoodCompany also developed the “Best Workplaces to Give Back” program, an annual assessment that awards the Top 40 Workplaces in Australia who support Corporate Giving Programs, Matched Donations, Charity Gift Vouchers & Rewards, Paid Volunteering Leave and invest in pro social activities like Diversity and Inclusion. As Australia’s first and largest Unified Workplace Giving, Volunteering, Fundraising and Rewards Platform, GoodCompany continues to experiment and innovate, finding new and exciting ways to connect more people with more causes every day. We hope you’ve liked what you have read so far and that you will speak to our referees like AGL whom we help connect their over 1500 of their staff to over 500 charities to donate over $1.4 m and Minus18 whom we’ve helped to raise over $40,000 to assist in improving the lives of LGBTQIA+ youth via life-affirming events, leadership programs, and education for the whole community.
