Giving back to the community

At HBF we’re committed to giving back to the community and finding ways to better the health of Australians.
Enriching the lives of our employees

Our people lend a hand through volunteer work and, often, reach into their own pockets to support causes that are close to their hearts.

Giving back to the community

We look for ways to improve the health of Australians through our Community Partnerships Program and local community grants.

I received a life-saving blood transfusion after a severe car accident. I never thought I would need a blood transfusion but because of donors like those from HBF, I survived.

What is the difference between the Community Partnerships & Grants?

Our Community Partnership awards significant funding (up to $300,000, over three years) to one recipient annually. We award multiple Community Grants (once-only funding up to $10,000) throughout the year.

What initiatives would qualify for Community Partnership Funding?

We are looking for opportunities to support and partner with initiatives that make a lasting and tangible positive difference to the health of Australians. Examples may include a technological advancement or a health-focused catalytic program that improves quality of life for Australians.

 What initiatives would qualify for Community Grants funding?

We support a range of initiatives, of all sizes that are making positive difference to the health of their local community. Funding surfing lessons for kids with autism to equipment for mobile ear testing clinic and a wheelchair friendly garden in regional areas are just some examples.
