Our Giving Grants
Our annual Giving Grants program presents our people with a unique opportunity to learn about and drive our giving journey. Each charity who is shortlisted is asked to submit a 2-minute, non-professional, video telling their story that we present to our employees. We aim to educate our people on the impactful range of charitable organisations and the needs of vulnerable communities through this program. Our people have gone on to volunteer regularly at shortlisted organisations or offer skilled volunteering for support.
2021 Giving Grants
In 2021, The Flight Centre Foundation gifted five grants to five charities as chosen by our people. Due to the success of the program The Giving Grants are now an annual program. In our first round of Giving Grants, we opened the applications for charities who felt they could justify their operations focusing on one of the three broad areas: Care, Climate and Crisis, within Australia. Participants across all FCTG businesses came together to shortlist the applications through a rigorous criteria and process, centred around our FCTG values. Out of 14 finalists, our people voted to fund five amazing organisations.
The Flight Centre Foundation grant will go towards targeting non-English speaking migrant women aged 45+ in Melbourne to gain the skills and confidence in job roles, providing the following services: social impact catering, online meal delivery systems and tackling food insecurity by feeding people in need.
