Kennards Hire Foundation
The Kennards Hire Foundation launched on 20 June 2018, at the Kennards Hire 70th Anniversary Gala Event.
In its first five years, the Foundation has pledged $7 million to help a diverse group of charities. . The charities we support who work with disadvantaged young people include BackTrack, Dismantle, Ganbina, KidsXpress, MITS, Nawarddeken Academy, Stepping Stone House and The Smith Family Learning for Life Program in Australia, and KidsCan and Springboard in New Zealand.
Whilst the Foundation does not accept unsolicited requests for donations, the Kennards Hire branch network continues to support and contribute to a wide variety of 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
Across our branch network, we supported well over 1,000 community groups and activities in 2019. Take a look below at a selection of some of the community events we were delighted to be involved with last year!
