Community & Philanthropy

ORIX provides support for charities across Australia through various community and sponsorship programs.

Fighting hunger in Australia

Foodbank is, by far, the largest hunger relief organisation in Australia – last year alone providing over 60 million meals to over 2,400 charities and 1,000 schools around the country.

ORIX & Foodbank

A non-denominational and non-profit organisation, Foodbank acts as a pantry to charities and community groups who feed the hungry, as well as a conduit between the food industry's surplus and the welfare sector's need.

Teams of volunteers from ORIX assist the permanent volunteers and staff at Foodbank with activities like picking and packing food orders and other general warehouse duties.

Giving time to assist others in need – and learning how vital volunteer manpower is to initiatives like Foodbank – is a very rewarding experience for everyone at ORIX, with all teams finding the work extremely satisfying and humbling.

Lifesaving equipment

The Humpty Dumpty Foundation is a children’s charity, which for more than 25 years, has been purchasing essential life-saving medical equipment for sick and injured children in paediatric wards and neonatal units in hospitals across Australia.

ORIX started supporting the Humpty Dumpty Foundation in 2015 by sponsoring the Balmoral Burn - an event created by Wallaby great Phil Kearns. Each year families, corporations, children and pets take on the Balmoral Burn – a 420m race course up Awaba Street in Mosman, providing much needed support and awareness for this worthwhile charity.

Helping Australian kids succeed

United Way aims to improve education, employment, health and housing outcomes in communities experiencing disadvantage across 41 countries. In Australia they work with businesses to improve early literacy and increase youth employment in over 35 vulnerable communities.

United Way

In 2015, ORIX joined the Macquarie Business Park Partnership. This first-of-its-kind collaboration currently supports over 275 local families through the Gift of Reading program targeted at 0-5 year olds who receive a book a month, while their parents receive literacy support and free educational resources and involvement in community events.

The Partnership also incorporates the Ready to Succeed program which supports local high school students from Marsden High School at risk of leaving school early. Employees from ORIX and other corporate partners within the Macquarie Business Park provide real-life work experience opportunities and mentoring both at the school and within the workplace, helping reinforce the value of study for future career prospects, and of positive work experiences.

ORIX is proud to be supporting United Way through the Macquarie Business Park Partnership.
