Community Partnership Guidelines

Thank for your interest in seeking community partnership support from the MacKellar Group

Our family and entire team take great pride in being actively engaged in the communities in which we operate. It is a vitally important aspect of our company culture and DNA.

These guidelines are designed to assist organisations in assessing the suitability of their community program, project or fundraising objectives against the key pillars of the MacKellar Group’s organisational values and strategic pillars.


Our Community Partnerships Approach

The MacKellar Group seeks to support organisations, programs and projects that are aligned to our company family values, our organisational culture and reflect the interests and passions of our collective team.

There are three key pillars of MacKellar Group’s community partnership strategy:

  1. We are deeply passionate about supporting young Australians to develop their talents to achieve their aspirations and dreams
  2. Supporting the regional communities in which the MacKellar Group operates is important to our business and our people
  3. Supporting community and charitable initiatives that promote health, diversity and inclusion and positively improve access and service quality for all Australians
