We work alongside corporate Australia to build meaningful partnerships, and thank the many businesses that supported us to assist the most vulnerable communities. Our partnerships include in-kind support, corporate volunteering, fundraising and raising awareness.
We re-signed our global partnership with Land Rover for another three years, supporting our goal to prepare three million people for disasters. We also signed a new 10-year partnership agreement with Insurance Australia Group (IAG). Our first shared value initiative came to fruition this year in the Get Prepared App. The group contributed over $1m of funding to support our emergency services work.
This year we partnered once again with Uber for our annual Clothing Drive. Thanks to Uber we collected an astonishing 43,500 kilograms of clothing from generous Australians. The donated items will be sold in Red Cross Shops and the money raised will fund work in vulnerable communities across Australia and our region.
Thank you to the following corporate partners who provided more than $50,000 (cash or in-kind) in support this year:
Disney - Australia

General Property Trust (GPT)
