Through the John McArthur Foundation, we provide financial and non-financial grants and support to a broad range of charities and not-for-profit organisations across Australia. The Foundation is funded by the McArthur business and therefore by the amazing work of our team across the country.
We have a portfolio of long-term annual contributions to vital charities such as The Starlight Foundation and Cabrini Hospital. McArthur team members are also encouraged to submit their ideas and recommendations and many of the Foundation’s contributions go to organisations and purposes close to their hearts.
Starlight Children’s Foundation Australia
Our CEO, Matthew McArthur received a warm welcome from the Starlight Children’s Foundation team when he called in last week to receive their thanks for our recent donation in recognition of Starlight Day. This is our 20th year of supporting the amazing work of the Starlight Foundation as they continuously strive to brightening the lives of seriously ill and hospitalised children & young people.
The Team at Starlight advised Matthew that “Our support this year will positively impact 256 sick children in hospital through Starlight programs”. As always our ongoing support is made possible by the great work of the McArthur internal team and our wonderful field staff working across Australia, and it is on their behalf that we make all our donations.
Keep up the great work Starlight…and thanks a million to all the McArthur teams. We couldn’t do it without you!
