Rocket supports a number of local and global causes that are doing vital work in supporting communities, empowering the disadvantaged and saving lives.
For many years now Rocket has operated a Workplace Giving program. Anyone in the team can choose to contribute a portion of their regular pay check to one of the four local and global charities we support. Rocket matches these staff donations dollar for dollar to double the contribution. Learn more about the groups we support below.
Wherever there is a humanitarian crisis, Médecins Sans Frontières medical teams are there at the front line providing assistance. This is the world’s largest independent organisation for medical humanitarian aid, and it relies on funding to continue its projects in over 70 countries.
Disadvantaged kids tend to fall behind in their education due simply to their circumstances. The Smith Family focuses on providing support, resources and family-based programs to help improve and extend these kids’ educations in 97 communities across Australia.
SOS Children’s Village Philippines aims to provide a stable family environment for children who are abandoned, orphaned, neglected or at risk. Kids live and grow in close units with their SOS mother, brothers and sisters, and supported and cared for by the wider village.
The central goal of the Redfern Foundation is to inspire pride, hope and leadership throughout the Aboriginal community in inner city Sydney. This group provides invaluable services though established support systems, programs and skill sharing opportunities.
In addition to our regular Workplace Giving, the Rocket team also likes to help out in particular times of need whether it’s from fire, flood or famine. If there’s a community here or abroad that’s been affected by a disaster we’ll hold team events to raise funds, which are then backed up with a company contribution to help provide assistance where it’s most needed.
We also love supporting events throughout the year including Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea, Movember, Jeans for Genes and City2Surf.
