Flight Centre Travel Group (FCTG) employees have the option of donating regularly to the Foundation via monthly pre-tax payroll deductions – the Workplace Giving Program.
All operating costs of the Foundation are also covered by FCTG, meaning all funds donated are passed through to our charity partners. The collective impact of employee’s generosity, boosted by FCTG matching their donations and covering Foundation costs, allows us to make annual commitments to our charity partners.
With 1200 employees around the country, the people of FCTG have an incredible range of skills that can be a huge help to charities and community organisations. Each employee has the opportunity to take a day’s paid volunteer leave each year to help lend a helping hand to one of the Foundation’s partner charities, or an organisation of the individual’s choice.
Volunteering can be done in a single day, or broken up over time to allow a regular commitment of skills or project work e.g. doing the accounts monthly for a local charity, working on web development project for a start-up social enterprise. Team volunteer activities are also regularly included at FCTG conferences, meetings and planning days across the country.
Days are spent with Animals, Children, the Elderly, Schools, Cleaning and Education, through charity partners.
