At StarTrack we are proud to contribute to the local communities where we live and work. That's why we offer our support and services to a range of charities and not-for-profit organisations every year.
We are continually looking at ways to engage our staff in local and national community events by seeking their input into the events and charities we support each year. StarTrack has a charitable contributions program that in 2012 saw us support Surf Lifesaving Australia, The Smith Family, Canteen and the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
Aside from the charitable contributions program, we partner with a number of organisations including:
Through our partnership with the Cancer Council’s flagship fundraising event Daffodil Day, StarTrack helps deliver thousands of Daffodil Day merchandise boxes right across Australia. The proceeds of which help raise much needed funds for the fight against all cancers.
In 2012, StarTrack celebrated ten years supporting the Cancer Council’s Daffodil Day.
