All our firms support community events and organisations in their local areas, aligning with the causes that are close to the hearts of their teams. DFK Australia New Zealand as a group, currently supports two main charities.
Supporting Ronald McDonald House
DFK ANZ is proud to support Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) through a variety of engagement, sponsorship and fundraising events in the community.
Our member firms and teams get involved in volunteer initiatives and events, as well as contributing funds in support of RMHC’s vital work helping sick children. In addition, member firms support houses in their local areas and raise funds via team events, fun runs, walks, working bees and morning teas.
We’re proud to support RMHC and help houses around Australia and New Zealand continue their great work.
In 2018 our annual donation is to Christchurch’s Ronald McDonald House which provides free accommodation to families who must travel to Christchurch and Invercargill for their child’s medical treatment. In 2017, the facilities became a ‘home away from home’ for more than 800 families. One of these families, the Moores from Cromwell, will join us for our June gala dinner to receive our 2018 donation. They spent 133 nights in the Christchurch House while their daughter was receiving treatment for an inoperable brain tumour. The Christchurch House was a place of solace and truly a ‘home away from home’ for this incredibly brave family.
Along with DFK International, DFK ANZ also helps to raise awareness and funds for men’s health through our participation in Movember.
DFK International ranks in the top 100 organisations worldwide for its Movember efforts.
Each year, more than 40 teams participate, growing over 330 moustaches and creating over 700,000 emails, social media posts and conversations promoting men’s health issues.
We also raise a substantial contribution towards the cause across DFK International.
We’re proud to continue support of this important message and event.
