Aon Charitable Foundation
Established in 2006, the aim of the Foundation is to support the community by collectively making the most of Aon's financial support. We strive to provide opportunities for our people to give their time and expertise through volunteering.
The Aon Charitable Foundation (ACF) currently supports four key charity partners through employee volunteering involvement and financial contributions.
The focus of ACF's activities is on education, welfare, healthcare & research, and the environment.
The Foundation also provides Aon colleagues with the opportunity to make donations to charities outside our key partners via Work Place Giving and through our recognition programs.
Community and Colleague Engagement
Financial support is an important component of our activities, but our approach goes beyond writing a cheque. ACF believe there are many ways to extend our support and build an active program of community involvement.
We encourage all our colleagues to help our charity partners and the community by using their annual volunteer leave day to support engagement initiatives throughout the year.
Aon colleagues provide additional community support by celebrating Empowering Results for Communities Day, Aon's annual day of volunteering. In 2017, over 950 colleagues volunteered to support charities across Australia in 100+ different activities, making a significant impact to the communities we live and work in.
The ACF provides a valuable platform for employees across all of Aon to connect with the community, get involved, inspire others and give back to the wider community. Aon also provides office facilities to our charity partners to utilise and enable engagement with all their stakeholders; be it the children they support, the volunteers that help them, members of their Boards or potential donors.
The ACF Board comprises one retired Director of Aon and five current employees. The Board members donate their time and there are no fees paid for their involvement.
The ACF is committed to supporting our community by sharing Aon's human, intellectual and financial resources.
We strive to create a meaningful and lasting impact through our community involvement. This encompasses corporate philanthropy, employee giving and volunteer programs.
