Supporting the communities that our people live and work in is at the heart of what we do here at Tomago. Our site joins the Hunter Region Botanic Gardens and we are proud to partner with them on a range of projects.
We also support and sponsor many local events and charities as well as supporting individuals in their personal pursuit of excellence.
We have an award-winning Workplace Giving Program which both our employees and the Company generously donate to.
In 2021, our Workplace Giving Program raised $143,000 with $75,000 donated to the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service and the rest being split between Ronald McDonald House, Survivor's R Us, Cancer Research (HMRI) and the Port Stephen's Koala Sanctuary.
In 2020 we raised $50,000 for the RFS towards their bushfire appeal along with another $40,000 split between Soul Café, Got Your Back Sister, Carrie’s Place and Headspace.
Since its inception, the Workplace Giving Program has donated more than $2 million to such local charities.
Some of the additional charities that we have supported over the past 12 months include:
Immune Deficiency Foundation Trust
Breast Cancer Awareness

John Hunter Children's Hospital
