Through IGA Community Chest we’ve raised well over $70m to help local communities.

 

Every day across the country IGA Community Chest raises funds to support local communities, charities and other worthwhile causes. It could be in response to a major event like floods or bush fires or something as simple as new soccer balls for the local under 8’s.

The money is raised in a number of ways but predominately through the purchase of products with an IGA Community Chest logo on the label.

How are IGA Community Chest beneficiaries chosen?

We have a tiered system for choosing beneficiaries.

1) For local activities, the beneficiaries are chosen by the local stores

2) Regional activities are chosen by the region or group of stores

3) State beneficiaries are chosen in consultation with the State Executive and Board.

Here are a couple of tips on becoming an IGA Community Chest beneficiary?

It’s best to approach your local IGA store directly. Prepare a pitch and it may include;
An overview of your organisation and/or the individual that you’d like supported. What support are you looking for – monies, donations of goods, providing team jumpers, holding regular fundraising at the store, group registrations at the store, etc. How the donation will be used and your timing. Is there anything you can offer in return to IGA? Don’t forget to include your contact details.
