When Dick Dusseldorp and Stuart Hornery set up the Lendlease Foundation in 1983, the objective was to nurture the wellbeing of employees and their families, and support employees involvement in charitable and community affairs. It was a goal ahead of its time and over the years it continues to prove to be something that makes us special.
The springboard experience offers different things to different people
Each year over 300 of our employees from around the world are given the chance to maximise their personal and career potential through this intensive five day personal development experience.
With partners on the Tasman Peninsula Community in south east Tasmania, Australia – our current program focuses on the theme of community sustainability and economic prosperity.
We’ve volunteered more than 600,000 hours
Community 365™ was introduced to provide employees with an expanded range of skilled volunteering opportunities throughout the year. it encompasses all of our volunteering programs, including our annual all employee volunteering program – Community Day. .
Since 1996, we have volunteered the equivalent to 65 years to community projects around the world.
We match employee skills' with community needs to deliver and support a range of projects. We address social, economic and environmental issues by providing services such as; design, build, clean, demolish, plan, paint, repair and teach.
Giving back to the communities in which we live and work
The Community Grant Program allows employees to donate time and effort to a charity, organization or cause. As an individual or team, the grant pays for necessary supplies and materials needed to assist. Lendlease supports charitable organizations that advocate, support, and/or practice activities consistent with Lendlease’s non-discrimination policies, whether based on race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, age or status as a protected veteran.
We dedicate our time to a number of causes, including: providing shelter to homeless, mentoring young people and retired military personnel, delivering educational opportunities and helping people who are recovering from natural disasters.
