The Viridian Foundation is our own public ancillary fund and the core of our Community Program. With the Viridian Foundation we can go further than our everyday and focus on creating a lasting impact in the world around us for those that need it the most. The Foundation gives back and financially supports community initiatives by gift matching staff donations.
Charity Starts at home
Viridian encourages staff to nominate social causes that have personal meaning. By focusing on issues that are close to home our staff create moments that matter in the community. Currently our staff have nominated homelessness, mental illness and financial literacy as areas of focus. Tackling these issues through charitable programs, as well as leveraging our own specialist knowledge, enables us to maximise our impact.
Volunteering and Mentoring
Viridian is a big believer that doing good leads to feeling good. All staff are given a day each year to volunteer or mentor in programs. This boosts wellbeing and helps us do more for the community around us.
