UON prides itself on the work our team does for the community around us.
We are always looking for new ways to provide a positive contribution to the industries and communities we interact with.
Let's work together!
Each month a selected department gets crafty to raise funds for a charity of its choice to raise awareness about issues affecting our community. Since it began, we've participated in crazy shirt days, raffles, BBQs, 'Guess the Baby' competitions, cake sales, swear jars (a great one for raising money on a hectic day) and much much more.
The lucky charities:
Our staff make sure this list keeps growing!
RMLA provides leadership, sports and education programs to Australian youth, particularly Indigenous youth, who suffer from misfortune or a feeling of disconnection from their community.
UON teams up with Role Models and Leaders Australia (RMLA) to help promote the development of young leaders for tomorrow.
Clontarf's Girl Academy assisted in the project by getting creative and painting custom Aboriginal designs on several of our generators to promote the Aboriginal culture and raise funds for the Role Models & Leaders Australia (RMLA). UON donated part of the proceeds from every hire/purchase to the RMLA.
The McGrath Foundation aims to raise money to place McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities right across Australia, particularly rural and remote areas, as well as educating young women to be breast aware.
To raise awareness about breast cancer we have co-branded and painted one of our speciality power generators hot pink, with proceeds going to the McGrath Foundation.
We donate $1 every hour the Pink Generator is operated and our clients also have the option to contribute a further $1 or set any amount of donation for every time the Pink Generator is used or hired. The initiative took place in 2011. We haven't seen a generator like it since.
UON joins forces with RMLA to provide young Aboriginal girls with the opportunity to learn how to sail SB20 design boats and to compete in the 2012 UON SB20 World Championships from 12-20 December in Hamilton Islands, Queensland, Australia. 4 Aboriginal girls made up 1 Aboriginal girls team with a professional helm directing them and providing guidance through the event.
