We are proud to help nib's employees support community causes that are important to them through our Good Cause Grants initiative.
Many of our employees are involved in community causes as volunteers, as fundraisers and donors, or because we or someone we know has benefitted from one of these community services. That's why we are once again drawing on the collective wisdom of nib's employees to help us find some of our 2016 charity partners.
A joint initiative of nib foundation and nib health funds, our employee nominated and voted annual grant program supports five causes across Australia and New Zealand with $5,000 grants.
One of the inaugural recipients is Heartfelt, a volunteer organisation of professional photographers who offer their time and services, free of charge, to families who are affected by premature births, stillbirths or children suffering serious illness.
An nib Sales and Service Consultant nominated the charity after seeing first-hand the comfort this service can provide by capturing precious moments between parents and their vulnerable children as they face the unimaginable.
The grant has helped Heartfelt reach an additional 77 families and enabled them to expand their services to remote areas of NSW by providing photography equipment to regional hospitals.
Our employees are currently submitting nominations for the 2016 Good Cause Grant so stay tuned to find out who are our lucky recipients!
