Goodman Foundation

Our activities include:

++

Endure for a Cure

– the Goodman Green

Machine cycling team took part in this 12 hour

endurance ride, raising funds to help the

Children’s Cancer Institute find a cure for

childhood cancer. The event was held at Sydney

Motorsport Park at Eastern Creek in Sydney,

with the aim of this challenge being for each

team member to ride as many laps of the

3.93 kilometre motorway circuit as possible.

The Green Machine rode a total of 718 kilometres,

at an average distance of 180 kilometres per rider!

Good360’s ‘Green Carpet Premiere’

Good360 is one of the Goodman Foundation’s

newest charity partners and recently hosted a

premiere event to launch their innovative

GivingPlace technology platform in Sydney.

Good360 bring together organisations that have

excess goods and products and connect them

with charities. Good360 take care of all of the

logistics, making sure these excess goods and

products go to charities around Australia, who

in turn give them to the people who need them

most. Recently they ‘recycled’ hundreds of

thousands of dollars of office fitout from

Goodman’s Botany Grove Business Park that

was destined for demolition. Instead, 14 charities

were able to benefit from the furniture, which in

turn was saved from landfill.

++

FareShare

– the Goodman Melbourne team

recently volunteered for their annual cooking night

at FareShare, preparing and cooking ‘rescued’

food (that would have otherwise gone to landfill)

into healthy and nutritious meals for charities in

Melbourne. The team valued learning about food

insecurity and food waste, as well as picking up a

few cooking skills and enjoying some team

bonding time with their colleagues.

Goodman QCQ Great Australian BBQ

– to

celebrate the Goodman Foundation’s new

partnership with Shanghai Qingcongquan Training

Center for Children with Special Needs (QCQ),

both parties joined forces to co-host the

Goodman QCQ Great Australian BBQ fundraising

event in Shanghai. Over 220 guests were treated

to live music, wine tasting, silent and live auctions

and a kids playground. The event raised RMB

850,000 (A$200,000), with all funds going toward

the renovation and refurbishment of new training

premises for QCQ. This will enable it to expand

the professional rehabilitation training and tutorial

services it offers autistic children and their

families, while easing the pressure on the

existing waiting list.

Through the active

participation of our people

around the world and the

support of the Goodman

Foundation, we are

striving to make a positive

difference by contributing

to the valuable work of a

number of charities in the

communities in which

Goodman operates.
