We’re committed to giving back!
$65,000 Partnership with the McGrath Foundation
Over the last 37 years, we’ve built a strong relationship with families across Australia and our pools are now enjoyed in over 40,000 households. We’re proud of the fact that our communities have chosen to support us as an Australian manufacturer so we want to do our bit to give back!
In 2017 we made the decision to commit a portion of all pool sales towards our charitable efforts. To kick things off we become official partners of the McGrath Foundation. We’ve promised to donate over $65,000 to the McGrath Foundation throughout 2017 and we’ve recently renewed that commitment for 2018.
The McGrath Foundation provides much needed support to patients and families of those who are going through the devastating process of fighting breast cancer. The McGrath specialist Breast Care nurses are supporting communities all of Australia when they need it the most.
Likewise, for every Compass Pool sold in New Zealand, a donation is also being made to the NZ Breast Cancer Foundation.
Plus an additional: Over $50,000 raised by our dealer network and generous suppliers!
We recently held a charity auction at our annual Compass Pools Dealer Convention in Fiji. The Auction was a fantastic way for our entire network to get behind our fundraising efforts for the McGrath Foundation. We’re pleased to announce we raised an extra $51,000 to add to our donation commitment for 2017.
And we’ll continue to find new ways to support our communities…
Although we have made a major commitment to the McGrath Foundation we still intend to lend a hand elsewhere. Our dealer network across Australia support many different and worthy causes which we are only too happy to get behind.
Nearly $15,000 Raised for the John McLean Foundation
After listening to John speak at our annual dealer conference in Fiji, several Compass Pools dealers and staff from our manufacturing facility joined him in his latest challenge to climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge. By participating in the climb. The Compass dealers contributed close to $15,000 to the John Maclean Foundation which works tirelessly to inspire and change the lives of Australian children who use wheelchairs.
Helping the Live for Lily Foundation in Bendigo
Our Bendigo dealer BG’s Pools and Spas have been working hard to raise funds for the Live for Lilly Foundation and their pursuit to find a cure for Child Cancer. We decided to help out with a little gift of our own. Our CEO, Anthony Cross, recently flew to Melbourne to attend the charity’s annual Butterfly Ball where we topped up BG’s efforts with an Additional $5,000. To help raise awareness we’ve also made a special order at the factory and every Compass Pools for BG’s has a turquoise exterior!
