Deloitte, through the Deloitte Foundation, supports Oxfam Australia as one of its key national community partners. Through the partnership, Deloitte supports our work financially as well as contributing time, energy and the skills of its staff on a pro bono basis to key finance, risk management and IT projects. Deloitte is part of the Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu group. In Australia, Deloitte provides audit, tax, consulting and financial advisory services to public and private clients.
“Through the Deloitte Foundation, Deloitte has chosen Oxfam as one of its key national partners. In making this move, Deloitte is seeking to expose its people to opportunities for putting back into the community…I hope the future might afford the opportunity for some Deloitte people to be out in the field, helping with Oxfam programs in Indigenous Australia and other parts of the world.”
– Deloitte Foundation Chairman Dennis Goldner
Oxfam Australia’s association with Deloitte began in 1999 when it participated in the first Australian Oxfam Trailwalker event in Sydney. Since then over 500 Deloitte employees have fielded teams in every Sydney and Melbourne Trailwalker event, raising over $400k in the process. In 2008 the company entered a record 35 teams in the two events. This year we’re proud to welcome Deloitte Financial Pty Ltd as a National Key Sponsor of the Oxfam Trailwalker event in acknowledgement of its participation and financial support. This has offered Deloitte the opportunity to promote internally and externally its key association with Oxfam and this iconic event, delivering value in terms of both brand promotion and positive staff perception.
In addition to the substantial engagement with Oxfam Trailwalker, Deloitte through the Foundation, Deloitte Academy and core business has made further valuable contributions through Tsunami matched giving, staff payroll giving, general fundraising and support of Oxfam Unwrapped. As at mid 2009 over half a million dollars has been received through the partnership by Deloitte Trailwalkers, Deloitte Foundation, Deloitte Academy and Deloitte Financial Pty Ltd.
