Corporate partnerships play a vital role in enabling Lighthouse to provide essential care and programs for children and young people affected by abuse, trauma, and neglect. By engaging employees and creating business opportunities, partnerships not only support Lighthouse, they also enable employees to feel more connected to their team and part of an organisation that contributes to a meaningful and local cause.

PARTNERSHIP WITH LIGHTHOUSE
Why get your business involved
01. Partnerships with Purpose
Apart from the incredible impact, you will make on the lives of disadvantaged young people, our Corporate Partnerships Program is designed to give back to you, and your organisation, creating a long-term and fulfilling relationship for your organisation, your team, and the young people Lighthouse cares for.
02. Workplace Giving & Fundraising
Workplace Giving is a simple and effective way for your team to regularly donate through automated, pre-tax, payroll deductions.
Or why not sponsor a fun run, host a morning tea or bake-off in the office, and support Lighthouse through workplace fundraising.
03. Team Engagement & Volunteering
Bring your team together away from your office for a collaborative volunteering session that will directly and meaningfully support our young people, carers and Lighthouse homes.

We partner with Australian businesses and organisations whose mission and values align with our own purpose, vision and values.
Our mission is to provide children and young people who are homeless, or at risk of homelessness, with the care and support they need to heal and thrive.
At Lighthouse, our vision is to end youth homelessness together.
We value respect, kindness, courage, thoughtfulness, commitment and working in partnership to achieve our goals.
We invite businesses and organisations who share these values and who want to help young people to have a safe place to live and thrive, to join us on our mission.
Lighthouse Foundation has a positive and diverse community of staff, volunteers and supporters.
If your business or organisation is interested in making a big difference for children and young people, then contact our Partnerships Team today.
The commitment of money, time and resources that you commit through partnership with Lighthouse is completely up to you and your business!
We have different levels of partnership. These range from mission and foundation partners who provide a deep level of ongoing support over multiple years, to community partners, who raise awareness through small campaigns and events.
No matter how much you are able to contribute, we are incredibly grateful for your support in working together towards ending youth homelessness.
