Partner With Us

As a not for profit organisation with a history of over 40 years delivering housing and support programs to women and children escaping family violence, we rely on support from the community to help deliver our vital services.

Emerge is committed to long-term, mutually-beneficial partnerships with local community groups, philanthropic organisations and businesses who share our vision of ending family violence and assisting women and children to rebuild their lives.

Our major donors and partners enable us to ensure our financial stability and continue to deliver our services.

Business community

We we can offer a diverse range of activities for businesses to engage with our work. This includes enhancing your profile by aligning with our brand, pro-bono work, helping to build staff motivation through volunteering and fundraising work, workplace giving and more.

We will work with you to develop a positive community profile and create an emotional connection between your brand and your customers.

Project sponsorship

Raising funds for a specific, significant project is a great way to engage all stakeholders in your company’s philanthropic work – staff, customers, suppliers and community. A well-aligned project will boost your customer, employee and community engagement as more and more people look to support organisations that reflect their own values.

Philanthropic community

The contributions of trusts and foundations are vital to the success of our services and innovative initiatives. Our philanthropy staff will work closely with you to help you advance your philanthropic goals, and to help find funding options that most interest you.

What your major gift can do:

  • Provide more accommodation for the growing number of women and children who find themselves homeless after escaping violence
  • Contribute towards our outreach, arts therapy and children’s programs
  • Help us to update our crisis centres
  • Provide access to Wi-Fi and other safety technology across all our housing
  • Update our accommodation to ensure they are safe, secure and accessible for all of our clients, regardless of their health, mobility or age.

Recognising your gift

In addition to keeping you informed about the impact your gift is making, we’d be pleased to recognise your generosity in a variety of ways, and to discuss options with you. These could include:

  • Plaques
  • Invitations to our regular events
  • Acknowledging your gift in our Annual Report or other publications we produce
  • Recognition on our website.

Schools and community groups

Community groups, such as Rotary and Lions’ groups, church groups, and others also work as volunteers on specific projects. We can host school visits and student volunteers, or we can come and present at your school or your church, and we welcome clubs willing to pitch in at working bees.

Workplace Giving

Every pay day, you can help change lives.

Workplace giving is a simple, convenient and tax-effective way to support Emerge, and the women and children we work with. It also provides us with a steady, regular source of income, enabling us to plan for the future.

Getting started

It’s simple!

Just speak to your HR, management or payroll team about nominating Emerge for workplace giving and setting up a program.

Once the program is in place, your chosen gift amount will be deducted directly from your pre-tax salary each pay day and donated to Emerge. Your employer may even be willing to match your donations dollar for dollar.

Workplace giving contributions can be deposited directly into Emerge ‘s bank account. Please email remittance advices to mail@emergesupport.org.au
