Kennards Hire Foundation
The Kennards Hire Foundation was launched on 20 June 2018, at the Kennards Hire 70th Anniversary Gala Event.
In its first five years, the Kennards Hire Foundation donation of $7 million will help a diverse group of children’s charity organisations, including Stepping Stone House, the Smith Family Learning for Life Program, Kids Xpress, BackTrack, Nawarddeken Academy in Australia. KidsCan and the Springboard Community Works will be the first recipients in New Zealand.
As part of their commitment to conservation, the foundation will also support Taronga Zoo, Australian Wildlife Conservancy and Bush Heritage, to aid in bringing their vision for a better environment into reality.
Whilst the Foundation does not accept unsolicited requests for donations, the Kennards Hire branch network will continue to support and contribute to local charities, schools, sporting and community groups.
People – our own and others – always come first
Behind the scenes, across every area of our business, our branches and teams support every-day activities that put a genuine, fair dinkum face to our values.
For us, it’s simply part of being a good neighbour and member of our local community. And being family-centric. It's a deep-seated belief that we should balance our continued growth and sustainability, with a positive social contribution.
Branch Community Work
Getting involved in our local communities is important to Kennards Hire. We’re committed to making our branch neighbourhoods stronger and more inclusive places to live, work and play.
Every branch across our network contributes to local charities, schools, sporting and community groups, through sponsorship, gift vouchers, financial contributions, and free or reduced hire rates.
Our teams are also always on hand to help if a natural disaster hits their area. They get behind moving equipment to and from disaster zones and supporting local recovery programs
