Arnott's has recognised the need for companies in Australia to give back to the community and as a result, formed The Arnott's Foundation.
Millions of Australians have grown up on Arnott's and for them, Arnott's is more than a food company, it is a piece of Australian history. The Arnott's Foundation is the result of this innovation, vision and commitment.
"The Arnott's Foundation believes Australia's future is in our families. Working together, we aim to create positive environments that allow families to build, maintain and enjoy a better quality of life."
What is The Arnott's Foundation?
The Arnottís Foundation is a non-profit charitable organisation. The Arnott's Foundation supports the following charities:
The Arnott's Foundation raises funds for Camp Quality Family Camps, which cater for more than 1,500 families nationally. The camps provide an opportunity for children and their families living with cancer to spend time together in a supportive, optimistic and fun environment where together, they celebrate living despite cancer.
Every year, volunteers from a range of service clubs and community groups hand out more than 1.6 million Arnottís biscuits at rest-stops around the country. Stop, Revive, Survive!
In the past year, the Foundation managed the donation of around 300,000 kilograms of store-quality biscuits, soups and juices to Australiaís largest hunger relief charity. And during the 2009 Victorian bushfires, Campbell Arnott's donated soup and biscuits to the retail value of $250,000.
The Foundation manages an annual donation of $50,000 to help Fairy Sparkle build and maintain her Fairy Gardens at children's hospitals around Australia. The gardens are a sanctuary for children and their families during long-term hospital stays.
All employees at Campbell Arnott's have the opportunity to show their support for The Arnott's Foundation through volunteering their time, participating in fundraising activities or donating funds, all of which are another way that our team can make a difference .
