AstraZeneca's medicines and the things we do touch people's lives worldwide. With a global business comes a global responsibility to the communities in which we operate. For us it’s not just a mantra; it’s a way of doing thinking, feeling and acting.
At AstraZeneca Australia we do not consider our responsibility to Australia and our support for a range of causes to be an optional activity - it is an integral part of all that we do and who we are.
In 2011, our commitment to community sponsorships and charitable donations in Australia exceeded $1 million.
Proud Australian supporter
In Australia, AstraZeneca has a proud history of supporting the local community.
In 2005, we announced a partnership with Redkite, a children's cancer charity.
Our ongoing support assists Redkite in providing children and their families battling childhood cancer, with fundamental services, both financial and emotional.
We’re incredibly proud of our support for Redkite and the difference we make as a key corporate partner.
Over the last year we’ve supported a number of charities and health consumer organisations including RUOK Day, the Royal Flying Doctor Service , National Asthma Council of Australia, Arthritis Australia and the Woolcock Institute for Medical Research, to name but a few.
During natural disasters when widespread devastation occurs, AstraZeneca Australia is there to provide support.
We’ve made substantial financial and medical donations, as well as co-ordinating our own staff fundraising efforts to facilitate personal contributions.
In 2011, we donated $40,000 to the Premier’s Disaster Relief Appeal.
