About The Flight Centre Foundation
Brightness of Future... it's a core philosophy of the Flight Centre Travel Group (FCTG). The Flight Centre Foundation is FCTG's way of harnessing the collective goodness of our people, industry partners and customers to give back to the communities where we work, live and travel.
FCTG and its founders have a rich history in community contribution - around the world, FCTG supports many charitable causes and the companies employees are actively engaged in giving. However enthusiastic, in the past efforts were not coordinated which meant giving efforts did not necessarily have the greatest possible impact they could.
In 2008 the question was asked - what kind of contribution could FCTG make to our community if we consolidated all of this giving goodness? In Australia, the Flight Centre Foundation charity trust was born, with the core purpose to direct FCTG's charitable donations to the community in the most effective and efficient way - to build a brighter future, our philosophy.
The Foundation now captures the collective passion of FCTG's 9,500 employees across Australia, channelling their contributions to the community via workplace giving and fundraising initiatives. Employee donations are matched dollar-for-dollar by FCTG, which also offers a paid program for employees who want to volunteer their time to charities and community organisations.
Since inception, we're incredibly proud to say that the Foundation's donations to our community have totalled $7.7 million towards a brighter future (to 30 June 2015). For more details on how and who we support, see Community Support.
