Corporate Social Responsibility Program

Since its inception in 2009, Touch Projects has always had a corporate ethos requiring it to ‘give back’.

Over the years we’ve done this in different ways, but each year we set ourselves priorities for the year, and strive to meet them.

The Touch Projects Board has agreed the following priorities for FY 2018/19, in line with our over-arching CSR Policy.

Priority Description Commitment
Mill Park Soccer Club
Annual sponsorship
Mill Park Soccer Club (‘MPSC’), in the outer northern suburbs of Melbourne, is a community-based club run by parents and local volunteers. It has approximately 340 kids and young adults from diverse backgrounds competing across 24 teams (from under-7s to senior teams). This includes numerous girls’ teams across most age groups.

The primary objective of the club is to provide an avenue for local kids to participate in a popular sport, a little or no cost to them. The MPSC conceived the notion be a socially and culturally-accepting place for kids of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds.

The club promotes active and healthy living, local engagement, and an inclusive and harmonious family culture that is enjoyed by all involved. These core values align well with Touch Projects’ own, and that’s why we choose to partner with, and sponsor, MPSC. Touch Projects has been sponsoring MPSC since 2014, at both an individual and corporate level, and we’re proud to be part of the local fabric and make a tangible difference to this community.

Touch Projects is committed to support this fantastic club financially as well as volunteering on a regular basis. Our General Manager and CEO both volunteer in the kitchen to help the club to further raise more money. This sponsorship and involvement go toward funding various programs which help to develop the kids to become better team and community members (as well as developing their game skills!).

As Touch Projects grows in New South Wales, our objective is to find and partner with a similar local sporting cub… even if it has to be rugby!

Movember
November 2018
Movember’ has been around for a little longer than Touch Projects, but we’re proud to have been part of it for the last few years.

Our two principals (and more than a few of the team) have been doing it individually, but from 2019 onward Touch Projects is attacking ‘Movember’ with all our corporate might.

We’re really proud to support the amazing work Movember does (focusing on prostate and testicular cancer and mental health), and we look forward to pushing the envelope in 2019 (and pushing our team, clients, and friends too).

Vinnies CEO Sleepout
June 2019
The ‘Vinnies CEO Sleepout’ is a new one for us, and in 2019 we plan on hitting it hard.

The Vinnies CEO Sleepout is a one-night event over one of the longest and coldest nights of the year. Hundreds of CEOs, business owners as well as community and government leaders sleep outdoors to support the many Australians who are experiencing homelessness.

Each CEO Sleepout participant commits to raising thousands of dollars to help Vinnies provide essential services to the people who need them
