2016 saw RIDBC expand its Corporate Program, developing new partnerships, strengthening existing relationships and welcoming new business groups wishing to engage with our organisation.

We are very fortunate to have many organisations continue their support for RIDBC each year.

Many of our corporate partners support RIDBC through workplace giving, whilst other corporate partners undertake volunteering, sponsorship of programs or events, donating goods and services, or holding events to raise funds.

We sincerely thank our corporate partners and their staff who have so generously donated their time, money, skills and goods and services to support our programs, services and events. Through their support over $542,000 was raised for RIDBC in 2016.

Hyundai Help for Kids

Hyundai Help for Kids continued to support RIDBC Teleschool Residential Camps. With their help, families were given the opportunity to participate in many interactive educational activities and socialise with parents and children from all over Australia.

RIDBC was proud to be chosen as one of three charity partners for the Coleman Greig Challenge: Corporate for Community, for the second year running in 2016.
