Deloitte Australia continues its impact in vital areas including health, wage and food poverty, and the environment. In 2019, we marked the 20th anniversary of Oxfam Australia and Deloitte’s deep and special partnership.
Since 2009, Deloitte has raised millions of dollars for many causes to help Oxfam in its quest for a just world without poverty. We celebrated the milestone with a series of thought-provoking speaker events about important global issues. We also continued to build on our national community partnership with Many Rivers, which empowers disadvantaged people and communities in regional and remote areas of Australia by providing business advice and microfinance. We are delighted to announce that in FY20, we are welcoming The Smith Family as our third national community partner, with a specific focus on creating opportunities for disadvantaged children using education as a key tool.
In FY19, we fondly farewelled CanTeen following our successful nine-year national community partnership through which we made a positive impact for young people affected by cancer by fundraising, pro bono work and mentoring, among other activities.
